Taking action on climate change

The new Abbott federal government has said it will remove a price on carbon, has already scrapped the Climate Commission and has few proposed policies aimed at slowing climate change or combating the impact on our community's health.

This is contrary to the international trend to step up and respond to the science of climate change including recommendations contained in the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, Fifth Assessment Report, Climate Change 2013: The physical science basis. It is now increasingly important for us all to reduce the impact we have on the climate and live a more environmentally sustainable lifestyle.

ANMF (Vic Branch) members are working together to establish and share environmentally sustainable workplace practices for a brighter future for the health of the Victorian community. After all, we are all in this together.
