- Governments in Australia are more concerned with appeasing either the climate change believers or the skeptics than to bother doing anything about our SKYROCKETING energy prices.
- Since 2015 we have seen an increase in energy prices of around 130% – this is unsustainable and is forcing small businesses and families to the wall!
- THE WASTE AND UNETHICAL ACTIONS OF THE POWER COMPANIES NEEDS TO STOP!
- An effective energy and sustainability policy is vital to protect our small businesses, our families, and to ensure the viability of our local communities.
The Small Business Party is concerned about detrimental changes in our climate and environment and will support sustainable and practical actions that protect the planet. We must, though, look at how to achieve this end while protecting small businesses and our communities from measures that make their jobs harder and impacts our families financially . We need to protect and nurture the engine room of the economy as well. We need strong leadership, good policy that’s fair and protects our people from both greedy power companies who prioritise profit over our planet and politicians who dream up poor and financially unsustainable policy just to win votes.
