While companies like Chevron and Woodside claim their gas is a clean fuel, shocking new data reveals they are actually WA’s biggest polluters.
Groundbreaking new research by Clean State has revealed that uncontrolled carbon pollution from WA’s oil and gas industry is already cancelling out national efforts on climate change and driving up Australia’s emissions in direct breach of the Paris Agreement.

The giant carbon footprint from WA’s LNG industry is several times greater than pollution from burning coal and is cancelling out the pollution savings made by all renewable energy installed across Australia.
Despite their staggering emissions, companies like Woodside, Chevron, Shell and BP have no pollution limits, and no requirements to get their climate damage under control.
But the good news is there is an opportunity to address our biggest pollution problem while creating thousands of new jobs across our state.
The EPA has suggested new rules for WA’s biggest polluters to offset their climate damage through investments in clean industries like renewable energy, tree planting and carbon farming. Independent analysis commissioned for our Clean State project shows this would create over 4000 jobs – more than the combined workforce on WA’s giant LNG refineries.
Will you ask your local MP to help turn WA’s biggest pollution source into thousands of clean jobs across our state?
We have made it quick and easy for you to send a copy of our new report to your local MP, and ask them to help turn our biggest pollution problem into a clean jobs boom for WA.
