Gas is fuelling the climate crisis more than any other industry in Western Australia. Despite overwhelming evidence to support reducing emissions – and quickly – WA is rapidly expanding its most polluting industry.

WA gas industry wants to keep expanding its operations into the 2070s, which is at odds with WA’s net-zero by 2050 target.

The aims of #Go Beyond Gas are to –

  1. Keep gas in the ground – All new or expanded gas projects, including Woodside’s Burrup Hub gas expansion, must be stopped. Gas power needs to be phased out by 2035 and gas exports by 2040. Woodside and partners are planning to process gas from the Burrup hub to 2070!  As part of the Burrup Hub plans, the next climate pollution proposal to land on the desk of Minister Whitby, the WA Minister for Environment and Climate Action, is the “Northwest Shelf Project Extension”.  WA needs to #GoBeyondGas. To do this, we must put pressure on Whitby to reject the Northwest Shelf Project Extension. 

    Your help is needed for this! Go Beyond Gas has a step-by-step guide to mount pressure over the next 6 weeks to help block this proposal.
  2. Secure strong climate legislation for WA – aligned with limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees, including short-term emissions reductions targets starting
  3. Plan for WA to go beyond gas to become a renewable energy superpower – WA can be a world leader in renewable energy by decarbonising our electricity grid, winding down existing gas infrastructure, and investing in our incredible renewable export potential.
