Green activism puts $65 billion of investment at risk

Luke Grant

Luke Grants is joined by Kurt Wallace, Research Fellow at the IPA, who says “a small group of green activists are using a special legal privilege to delay and disrupt $65 billion of investment, which is disproportionately damaging regional Australia”

 

A new report from the Institute of Public Affairs analyses the costs resulting from legal action taken under Section 487 of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act.  Section 487 of the EPBC Act extends the legal right to challenge federal environmental approvals to environmental groups.

 

“Over $65 billion of investment in projects, including new coal mines, dams, and roads, have been delayed in court by green activists for a combined total of 10,100 days or 28 years,” said Mr Wallace.
