Labor adopts Turnbull’s NEG
The Saturday Paper
Thu 22 November, 2018
Federal Labor will adopt former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull’s discarded energy policy and pledge billions of dollars in renewable energy investment when it unveils its climate change policy today. Labor’s shadow cabinet agreed on Wednesday to endorse Turnbull and then-environment and energy minister Josh Frydenberg’s National Energy Guarantee, which was endorsed by the Coalition party room in August before being derailed by backbench conservatives. In an announcement today, opposition leader Bill Shorten will also recommit a Labor government to a 45 per cent reduction in 2005-level carbon emissions by 2030, and renewed funding for the Clean Energy Finance Corporation.
