Frack Free Tas is pushing for a legislated ban on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in Tasmania. We are keen for producers of fine Tasmanian food and beverages to collectively make the point that their thriving industries are dependent on the brand 'Tasmania' to continue being known for clean water, air and soil.
This pledge will encourage political parties to clarify if they will:
- Protect our brand by enacting a permanent legislated ban (as in many other jurisdictions around the world), or
- Leave the doors open for industrial gasfields?
Please add you business name to our pledge:
Our business is reliant on the premium Tasmanian Brand, which is underpinned by clean land, water and air. We support a legislated permanent ban on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in the State of Tasmania. This mining technology has proven to have too high a risk of contamination of our water, air and soil. Because of these risks, any fracking in our state will affect our brand, and therefore, our business and prosperity.
Fracking is incompatible with our economy, our health and our lifestyles.
Please ban it now.
