Clean, Green and Clever
Christine Milne, Global Greens Ambassador, former Leader of the Australian Greens
Christine Milne was a former Senator for Tasmania and leader of the Australian Greens, and is considered one of Australia’s most experienced environmental and community activists, with more than thirty years of front line activism. “Clean, Green and Clever” sums up the policy frameworks she pursued during her career in the Australian Parliament, which was focused on driving action on global warming and a transformation to renewable energy and a green economy. One of her proudest parliamentary achievements was the negotiation and passage of the Clean Energy Package in 2012, which was recognised by the International Energy Agency as a template legislation for developed countries. Christine was in Kuching in March for the Clean Energy Collaboration, and she joins us to share why she thinks Malaysia is well-positioned to transition to a renewable energy economy, and position itself as Southeast Asia’s clean energy and renewable industries leader.
