London ministerial roundtable on energy and the environment


The Minister for the Environment and Heritage, Senator Ian Campbell, will attend a ministerial roundtable on energy and the environment in London next week.

The roundtable, hosted by the United Kingdom as Chair of the G8, will focus on action on climate change beyond the Kyoto Protocol.

"Australia's objective is to work with other members of the international community to advance our shared interests in finding a global response to climate change," Senator Campbell said.

"This conference is another important step towards our goal of getting all of the world's major emitters of greenhouse gas, including the United States, China and India, to agree on common approaches."

Senator Campbell will chair a ministerial panel session on the development of low carbon energy systems.

Nineteen other nations, including Russia, Japan, the United States, Brazil, Canada and India, will attend the conference on Tuesday and Wednesday.
