How Hunt set Australia on the right climate path

With government and business now on the same team, Greg Hunt’s Direct Action plan should allow Australia to play an important role in the carbon game.

Environment Minister Greg Hunt’s Direct Action plan may have been dismissed by the extreme greens, but around the business community, it is generating considerable interest.

When Foreign Minister Julie Bishop and Hunt go to next year’s Paris climate conference, they will now have some cards to play -- particularly as we were one of the few nations that met our 1997 Kyoto protocol obligations, albeit that we did not sign the treaty until we knew we had achieved the required carbon reduction.
