Australia’s top 10 climate polluters

Australia’s top 10 climate polluters

The Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) released a report naming the 10 companies responsible for a third of Australia’s greenhouse gas pollution. The report shows that an alarming amount of pollution is a result of their production and use of energy.

Mining companies Energy Australia, AGL and Origin were all in the top 10.

‘The problem isn’t electricity, which is an essential service we all use, but the way most of our electricity is generated in Australia’ said the President of ACF Geoff Cousins.
