Australia’s ‘coalition of the ambitious’ eyes low carbon prize

Andrew Peterson, Sustainable Business Australia

Business in Australia is committed to a low carbon future, according to Andrew Peterson from Sustainable Business Australia, but it needs stronger signals from governments.

“It’s a twofold enterprise,” he says. “You plan the possible and you promote the pragmatic, and I think that is where business is at.

“It’s wanting to see signals and the opportunities that a low emission target would provide for innovation and investment.

“You’re starting to see business prepare strategically and operationally for what I think will be an important future for low carbon in Australia”
