Assessment Summary:
The Environmental Record of the NSW Government (2011-2015)

coal loader Nine leading environmental advocacy organisations in NSW have worked together over several months to develop a major document that both assesses the state of the NSW environment and offers a coherent set of environmental policies to make it a better place.

The document is entitled "Our Environment, Our Future".

A small but key section of this document summarises the government's record so far. This summary is shown in italics below.

"The Record so far

For decades, people across NSW have been working hard to protect and improve our environment. We have made many gains in protecting our clean water, forests and world renowned national parks. We have strived to reduce waste, live more sustainably and reduce our contribution to climate change. Yet since coming into office in 2011 the NSW Government has declared war on our environment. Since its election, the current government has:

We can no longer allow the government to place vested interests and political deals above clean air, water and iconic natural places. Together we must tell the NSW Government that enough is enough: we will not stand by and watch our environment be destroyed."
