Australian Climate Roundtable renews climate change commitment

Announced on the 31 May, Australian Climate Roundtable has reaffirmed its commitment to find long-term solutions to climate change and energy transition issues through its joint principals’ policy.

The principles address the goals of a climate change policy and ideas on meeting set goals.

Part of the Australian Climate Roundtable’s policy is to limit global warming to less than two degrees above preindustrial levels. To achieve this, members of the Roundtable are encouraging Australian businesses to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions to zero or below.

Australian Climate Roundtable members include the Australian Aluminium Council, the Australian Conservation Foundation, the Australian Council of Social Service, the Australia 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 World Wildlife Fund Australia.

The Roundtable recently welcomed the National Farmer’s Federation to the group, introducing the land sector to the variety of industries, businesses, communities, union, and environment groups already represented.
