Environment Victoria has created a new Promise Watch database to record the environment and climate change policy commitments of the major parties as they are announced.

Promise Watch aims to provide factual, spin-free, up-to-date information for Victorians about environmental issues and climate change to increase transparency and hold the parties to account for their election promises.

There are 3 policy categories:
1. Cleaning up power supplies and reducing carbon pollution
