Have your say: EPA Greenhouse Gas Guidelines

Have your say: EPA Greenhouse Gas Guidelines

The Environmental Protection Authority of WA (EPA) is asking for public input into how they assess greenhouse gas emissions as they create an updated Greenhouse Gas policy.

Strong Greenhouse Gas Guidelines for the EPA means more chance fracking proposals won’t be given the green light and will help hold polluters to account. 

Send a message to the EPA today, in support of a Greenhouse Gas Policy that stops further fossil fuel expansion.

You have until midnight on September 21st to send your message!

The draft EPA guidelines for Greenhouse Gas emissions can be found here

  • We support the EPA holding polluters to account for their greenhouse gas emissions, and requiring greenhouse gas management plans.

  • The Greenhouse Gas Guidelines must require deep cuts in emissions this decade - in line with the latest and best climate science.

  • Activities considered under the guidelines must also include oil and gas exploration, not just “the extraction, processing and refining of oil and gas”.

  • The EPA must refuse projects, such as new oil and gas projects,  that can not mitigate their scope 1, 2 or 3 emissions in line with the latest climate science.

  • Net-zero targets or trajectories for projects which use unproven technology like Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) are not acceptable, as neither deliver what we need to stop the climate crisis - fewer GHG emissions being released into the atmosphere right now.

  • Currently only very large projects polluting over 100 000 tonnes of CO2e are covered. With the threshold this high, many projects with major emissions impacts won't be covered and WA's emissions will continue to rise. The EPA must lower the current threshold.

  • The EPA’s revised guideline: “proposals should not be separated into separate referrals to avoid consideration of GHG emissions” is welcomed.
