Australia urged to cut emissions

Australia urged to cut emissions
Australia has more work to do to improve its energy efficiency than other countries in the rich world, a new report has claimed.

Research commissioned by London think tank E3G and the Climate Institute in Sydney found that Australia is lagging behind other nations in terms of carbon emissions.

Lord Nicholas Stern, an economist and climate change expert, noted that the global recession should provide countries with the perfect opportunity to become more energy efficient.

He said: "Countries which don't seize this opportunity will undermine their future competitiveness."

John Connor, head of the Climate Institute, added: "This is something which puts our jobs and living standards at risk if we don't get on with economy-wide measures to change our economy to cut carbon pollution and to increase our productivity."

Australia came 15th in terms of ability to generate business through low carbon activity. The most highly ranked countries for carbon competitiveness were the UK, France, Japan, Germany and South Korea.
