Australian Conservation Foundation Challenges Adani Carmichael Federal Approval

On behalf of Australian Conservation Foundation, the Environmental Defender’s Office Qld sought a review of the legality of Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt’s re-approval of Adani Carmichael coal mine project.

The case was about whether the minister correctly applied the law when considering the impacts of the project on the Great Barrier Reef. The argument was not accepted by the Federal Court.
