Abstract

This Crowley framework provides for politically supported, urgent action on the reduction of Tasmanian government emissions and is intended to facilitate early action as well as lasting change. It complements existing state efforts in pursuit of sustainability and Tasmanian Together’s environmental goals. The framework covers the broad spectrum of government including core agencies, Parliament House, hospitals, schools and government business enterprises (GBEs). The framework proposes that emissions reduction action be taken in two phases. Phase one should focus on the key areas of government activity where greenhouse emission information is available and where there is potential to reduce emissions quickly. Phase two will address the more complex areas of government where more research and planning is required to effect real change. It is intended that lessons learnt in phase one should inform phase two and generate improved emission reduction governance, so that the processes for managing the delivery of emission cuts will continuously improve. It is also intended to model change as a catalyst for community, business and industry action. All of the lessons learnt from implementing this framework should be made publicly available. Reduction efforts and outcomes should also be subject to legitimate and transparent accountability processes by being monitored, reported, evaluated, and reviewed.
