Report on Environmental Accounting for the ACT Government

MR MOORE (5.26): I present Report No. 22 of the Standing Committee on Planning and Environment entitled "Environmental Accounting for the ACT Government", together with the extracts of the minutes of the proceedings. I move:

That the report be noted.

This, I think, is a very important report for the Assembly. It is in some ways a very brief report, but it introduces, conceptually, something that the committee believes to be particularly important in ensuring ecological sustainability and ecological sustainable development, which I believe all members of the Assembly are committed to. The report has a series of recommendations which primarily are based on trying to take environmental accounting to the next stage. We are calling on the Government to prepare an options paper on environmental accounting for tabling in the June 1997 sittings.
