POLITICS & POLICY

Adam Bandt

Adam Bandt is the Federal Member for Melbourne.

He was elected in 2010, making history by becoming the first Greens MP elected to the House of Representatives at a general election. Adam was a key participant in the Gillard power sharing government’s Multi-Party Climate Change Committee which developed the carbon price and established the successful Clean Energy Finance Corporation and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency. This period of Greens-Labor shared power has been the only time on record that Australia’s pollution has dropped. In 2019, Adam led the push for Australia’s Parliament to declare a climate emergency.

Adam is the federal Greens Co-Deputy Leader and spokesperson on climate and energy, employment & industrial relations, public sector and science, research and innovation.


Adam’s

Perspective

“Right now, our world faces an environmental and climate emergency and economic inequality is spiraling out of control. We need a publicly led, whole-of-society response to this crisis. To tackle the climate emergency, Australia needs a Green New Deal.“
