Garnaut missing a chapter

01 Jul 2008Archived News Energetics in the News

Leading sustainability expert, Jonathan Jutsen, has said that today's Garnaut Report disappointingly downplays a key climate change solution: energy efficiency measures.


Jon Jutsen is founder of Energetics, Australia’s leading sustainability consultancy.

“In looking at complementary policy measures that are required beyond the emissions trading scheme, Garnaut has missed the obvious solution: energy efficiency.”

“Simply put, the emissions trading scheme alone will not drive sufficient improvements in the energy efficiency of business and their operations.”

“With Garnaut sidelining energy efficiency, it’s now down to the Government's Green Paper to focus on cost effective actions to cut energy demand,” he said.
