The question is whether this Bill provides the best possible basis for fair and ambitious climate action. What SA really needs is a "fair and ambitious bill" that goes further than mere effective co-ordination within government. ERC comments on the Bill address review cycles; regulation of companies;  carbon budgets – with meaningful deadlines;  a robust legal basis for mandatory reporting of GHG emissions data; published climate information; independent institutions; phase out in line with Kigali; penalties commensurate with offences; just transition; funded mandates and schedules for a prompt start.
