The Green Party envisions a society in which:
- Extraction of naturally occurring minerals should only occur where it will assist in our transition to a just and sustainable green economy;
- Renewable and recycled materials and forms of energy production are maximised, reducing the demand for new extraction activities;
- All extraction is within acceptable environmental limits; and
- All adverse effects are remedied as far as reasonably possible, both during a mining operation and after decommissioning.
