The Commissioner, Professor Kate Auty, provided the Implementation Status Report on ACT Government’s Climate Change Policy to the Minister for Climate Change and Sustainability on 15 September 2017. It was tabled in the Legislative Assembly and released on 26 October 2017.
The report responds to a Ministerial Direction to audit the actions in AP2: a new climate change strategy and action plan for the Australian Capital Territory (AP2). 17 Recommendations were made in this report (refer to page 3 and 4 of the Government Response below).
This is the second independent review of ACT climate change policy undertaken by the Commissioner, the previous one being in 2014.
