On 23 February 2017, the Climate Change Bill 2016 successfully passed through the Victorian Parliament’s Upper House to create a new Climate Change Act, as the latest step in reinstating Victoria as a leader in climate change action.
The Bill gives effect to the majority of the commitments set out in the Victorian Government Response to the 2015 Independent Review of the Climate Change Act 2010. The Bill will provide Victoria with a world-leading legislative foundation to manage climate change risks, maximise the opportunities that arise from decisive action, and drive our transition to a climate resilient community and economy with net zero emissions by 2050.
