G20 MEMBER COUNTRIES117another 30 per cent within the next five years. A carsharing Internet tool is offered to ADP's employees andwill be extended to the entire airport zones workforce.This programme is expected to reduce ADP's commutertraffic by 10 per cent. For passengers, the new rail directlink CDGExpress will connect Paris downtown with theParis-Charles de Gaulle airport, non stop, in less than 20minutes by 2012. This new offer will allow a substantialsaving in the CO2 emissions produced in traffic jams onthe A1 or A3 motorway to the airport.CONTRIBUTING TO RESEARCH ANDINNOVATIONADP is strongly implicated, with the community ofEuropean airports run by ACI-Europe, in supportingand promoting the new European Directive related toemissions trading including aviation. ADP is an activemember of the SESAR consortium, which is workingon the improvement of Air Traffic Management(European Single Sky). SESAR will achieve about 10per cent CO2 reduction by 2015.LOOKING FORWARD?Our ambitious plan for CO2 reduction will becontinuously enhanced by the involvement of majorairline carriers, especially Air France-KLM, in aircraftfleet modernisation. Research & Development carriedby aircraft and engine manufacturers will allow airtransportation to remain, despite the increase intraffic, a responsibly small contributor to thegreenhouse effect. Today air traffic contributes around3 per cent of the global CO2 emissions and theairports' share is about 3 per cent of this amount. Ourmission and commitment is to act responsibly towardslocal communities and the planet and reduce theamount of greenhouse gas emissions we produce. Thisambitious programme will allow ADP to increase thetraffic in the long-term by 4 per cent a year, withoutgenerating additional CO2 emissions.INCLUDE, ACT, PREVENT, PROMOTEAware of its responsibilities as a major player in thedevelopment of the Ile-de-France region, the Aeroportsde Paris Group is trying to be exemplary in its respect ofthe environment. This decision is based on the processof ISO 14001 certificationof its platforms, which isindicative of its commitment to sustained development.It takes into account the group's responsibility to societyand its implementation is integrated into the economiclogic of its strategic plan. Our policy's reality is based onthe daily involvement of all our units and all our fellowworkers. Each of them makes a serious effort to put thispolicy into practice, whilst taking into account respectfor those around us as much as the statutory context ofthe field in which we operate. nTHE FOUR PRINCIPLES OF THEAEROPORTS DE PARIS GROUP INCLUDE THE ENVIRONMENTSYSTEMATICALLY IN OUR ACTIVITIESBolstered by our ambition to operate in aprocess which respects the environment, weare committed to using the best practicesexisting in this field in all our activities(maintenance, operation, purchasing,management, contracts.) This principle isbased not only on a strict respect of theregulations in force, but also on respect of theadditional commitments we have fixed forourselves. It is applied in order to maintaincontinuous improvement.ACT AS A RESPONSIBLE PLAYERWe are aware of the considerable stakes thatconstitute the fight against climate change andthe control of air quality, and so commitourselves to act in favour of control of local (NOxparticles) and global (CO2) emissions for whichwe are directly responsible. This commitment isbased on our action in relation to the transportmethods within or around our airports and bettermanagement of our existing and future heritage(High Environment Quality - HEQ standards).PREVENTIn answer to the requirements for exemplaritywe are managing our own environmental impactand are committed to implementing thenecessary technical and human means toprevent the collective risks of pollution at ourairports (rainwater, waste disposal). This ruleapplies particularly to the constant involvementof our fellow workers but also to that of our director neighbouring territorial economic partners.PROMOTE VALUES AND PASS ON GOOD PRACTICESIn line with our active participation in theGlobal Compact, we wish to respect all parties(residents, communities, companies, publicbodies) and aware of the importance of ourpractices for the area we operate in. We arecommitted to communicating ourenvironmental impacts with completetransparency by increasing the importance oflistening, dialogue and consultation. This aimalso contributes to the support of theenvironmental management actions engagingby all other players on our airport

e have now had decades of heated publicargument and political opinion, alongsidedecades of enlightened scientific researchand economic analysis. After all thoseopinions have been expressed, most Australians nowagree: our climate is changing. This is caused by carbonpollution, this has harmful effects on our environmentand on the economy, and the Government should act. And after all that analysis has been done, mosteconomists and experts also now agree the best way isto make polluters pay by putting a price on carbon. Sothat is the policy of the Government I lead. And that isthe plan which is before the House now. A plan for a carbon pricing mechanism which meansaround five hundred big polluters to pay for every tonneof carbon pollution they put into our atmosphere. Aplan to cut carbon pollution by at least 160 milliontonnes a year in 2020. A plan for tax cuts, increasedpensions and increased family payments. A plan forclean energy jobs and investment. a plan for a cleanenergy future for our country. Today we move fromwords to deeds. This Parliament is going to get thisdone. There will be a price on carbon from 1 July2012. The carbon pricing mechanism, which beginsits course through our Parliament today, is the productof years of public policy discussion and development.In the late 1990s, the Australian Greenhouse Officepublished papers setting out how a carbon pricemight work and sought public submissions. Then theNational Emissions Trading Taskforce established bythe States and Territories, and the Shergold report setup by the Howard Government, embarked onextensive consultation processes. Each generatedwide ranging recommendations on designing themechanism for a carbon price.Further consultation on detailed design issues occurredthrough the Garnaut Review, the Green and WhitePapers, and in response to draft legislation supportingthe former Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme,defeated in the Senate. In September 2010, theGovernment convened the Multi-Party Climate ChangeCommittee to agree a way forward. In February thisyear, the Government released a Climate ChangeFramework for public discussion. In July, theGovernment announced the carbon pricing mechanismand, later that month, released draft legislation. We received over 300 submissions on the draft billsand had extensive discussions with businesses, non-government organisations, other governments andlegal stakeholders. All adding to the literally thousandsof submissions which have been made to Governmenton this issue over the years. Many advocates andadvisers have worked enormously hard. I am gratefulfor the tremendous energy and seriousness with whichso many have treated these exhaustive - evenexhausting - discussions.All part of the years of research and analysis whichunderpin the policy embodied in the legislation Iintroduce today. I firmly believe no stone remainsunturned, no voice unheard. So this is the plan forAustralia's carbon price.A modern policy approach,with efficient allocation and incentive to innovate,linked to global markets. A fixed price for the firstyears, a well designed market from 2015. Assistancefor emissions-intensive, trade exposed industries.Evidence-based emissions targets. Abatement at thelowest economic cost. All adding up to a new bottomline: Where polluters pay.Let me turn to the main features of the Clean EnergyBill 2011. The Bill provides that the carbon price willTHECLEANENERGY BILL2011118G20 MEMBER COUNTRIESTHE HON JULIA GILLARD, PRIME MINISTER, AUSTRALIAW
