Will they listen to the vested interests of the big energy companies, or will they support billions of dollars of new clean energy investment, tens of thousands of jobs across the country and cutting millions of tonnes of pollution?
These ten polluting giants are responsible for nearly a third of our nation's greenhouse pollution. And most of this pollution comes from how they produce and use energy, often with inefficient coal-fired power plants that are old rust buckets well past their use-by dates.
When the Abbott government tried to pull the rug out from under the Renewable Energy Target, large-scale renewable investment in Australia plummeted by 88 per cent. Despite all our sun, wind, and waves investors and innovators looked abroad.
These companies are polluting our air, our water, our ecosystems and our communities. There’s only a handful of them, making a quick buck while they still can. And even worse – some are actively lobbying against cutting pollution.
