What Victoria can learn from Western Australia's weather

Wednesday 30 March 2011

When it comes to water management, there's something of potential value that Victoria could learn from Western Australia's weather given discussions about new dams

And the message is clear - companies, BIG well known companies are tackling the issues of climate change, sustainability and their carbon footprints and both making and saving VAST sums of dollars. The simple take away message from the presentations over the three days could not have been more explicit - tackling climate change pays off big time!
