International approach required for pricing carbon: Qantas

Qantas CEO Alan Joyce declined to back BHP Billiton's call for Australia to introduce a carbon price, stating that Qantas was taking steps to reduce its carbon footprint, including acquiring more fuel-efficient aircraft (ABC, 22-Sep-2010). Mr Joyce added that an international approach was required for pricing carbon.

Qantas: "I know there is a big debate around about how we should respond to climate change. There's no doubt that in aviation we will need a global approach to a global industry," Alan Joyce, CEO. Source: ABC, 22-Sep-2010.
