The Australian Climate Roundtable includes the Australian Aluminium Council, the Australian Conservation Foundation, the Australian Council of Social Service, the Australian Council of Trade Unions, the Australian Energy Council, the Australian Industry Group, the Business Council of Australia, the Investor Group on Climate Change, the National Farmers’ Federation and WWF-Australia.
Our organisations remain concerned about the effects of climate change and agree on the continuing importance to Australia’s prosperity, environment and social cohesion of a fair, just, effective and efficient response to climate change. These are issues for public policy to address over the next three years and beyond. There is no way through this debate other than by finding common ground. We will work together to that end and provide input to governments in due course.
The Australian Climate Roundtable’s joint principles for climate policy are at www.australianclimateroundtable.org.au.
