SUBMISSION TO DEPARTMENT OF PARKS, ENVIRONMENT AND WATER SECURITY IN RELATION TO THE DRAFT POLICY “GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS OFFSETS POLICY AND TECHNICAL GUIDELINES”

18.10.2021

On the 15th of October 2021 the Environment Centre NT submitted a written response to the draft "Greenhouse Gas Emissions Offsets Policy and Technical Guidelines".

ECNT is of the view that the Draft Offsets Policy is weak climate policy that will do little to achieve the Northern Territory Government’s goal of net zero emissions by 2050. ECNT believes that, together with the release of the weak Greenhouse Gas Emissions Management for New and Large Emitters Policy (Large Emitters Policy), the Draft Offsets Policy will prolong and entrench highly carbon intensive projects and lead the Northern Territory more quickly towards catastrophic climate change.
