Welcome to the Greens NSW e-brief!
The Greens NSW would like to deeply thank our amazing emergency services personnel, our brave firies and selfless volunteers, who have been working days and nights and have put their lives on the line to our protect communities from the horrific effects of bushfires. Our hearts go out to the people affected by severe fires in the Blue Mountains, Illawarra, Shoalhaven and Hunter regions.
The Greens NSW will continue to work in our communities and across all levels of government to ensure the threat to life and property is managed effectively and the risks minimised in accordance with our policy of strategically planned hazard reduction, including controlled burning, where and when climatic conditions allow it to be done safely.
The Greens NSW are committed to addressing climate change and the real and imminent threat that it poses to people, the environment and the economy, including from increasing numbers of high fire danger days.
