An independent officer will be appointed to oversight the implementation of all 135 recommendations.
“We understand that many Territorians are concerned about increased greenhouse gas emissions from fracking and as recommended by the inquiry, I have written to the Prime Minister and the Federal Leader of the Opposition seeking their agreement to partner with us in offsetting all additional emissions,” said Mr Gunner.
“In addition, this Government will soon be seeking comment on draft Climate Change and Environmental Offset policies which we want to finalise before the end of the 2018.
“These reforms will require significant additional resources and we have approved $5.33 million over three years to implement the 135 recommendations.
“This will ensure that our unique environment is protected while much needed new jobs are created – particularly in remote and regional parts of the Territory.
“In line with the recommendations of the report, the Government will be ensuring industry pays its fair share through an appropriate cost recovery model.”
