The bill seeks to add two conditions to decisions made under six existing pieces of legislation, including the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. In particular, decisions that facilitate the financing and development of projects that could harm the climate.
These conditions would require that decision makers consider the impact of decisions that could harm the climate on the health and wellbeing of current and future children. They would also prevent decisions that would harm the climate if the decision poses a material risk of harm to the health and wellbeing of current and future children in Australia.
