June 2018 - Download submission

This submission concerns the Environment chapter of the TPP and details a suite of recommendations to implement the chapter into Australian law - this comes from EDO NSW advice to Humane Society International: Implementation of Chapter 20 of Transpacific Partnership (TPP) in national environmental laws.

Ultimately, HSI urges the Australian Government to introduce the enforceable obligations contained in Chapter 20 into domestic law irrespective of whether the TPP is ratified, as these provisions stand to strengthen Australia’s environmental policy.
