In response to BHP’s statement today, WCA Chairman Mick Buffier said:
“Naturally we are disappointed at the outcome of the review, we do not feel that the report accurately reflects the views of the WCA. The WCA has always supported a balanced approach that integrates climate and energy policy; working towards a low emission future for coal. A visit to the WCA website will find the first item listed as ‘A pathway to zero emissions from coal, supporting the deployment of all low emission technologies’.
We hope to be able to continue working with BHP on this basis in the future.”
