BHP Billiton executive Mike Henry says the resources group supports the recommendations of the Finkel Review, including the introduction of a Clean Energy Target. The head of BHP’s Australian minerals division adds that the company is of the view that reducing carbon emissions must be a key element of Australia’s energy policy, including the use of carbon capture and storage technology in coal-fired power generation. BHP’s position is at odds with that of the Minerals Council of Australia, which supports the construction of clean-coal power plants but without the use of carbon capture and storage solutions.
