I shouldn’t find fault. The stand taken by AIG, BCA and ACCI on green tape is very welcome, particularly as it has got a positive response from the PM. But it is deeply disappointing that industry associations have waited this long, and waited until they could smell a change in community sentiment, before acting.
It’s only half-acting, of course. It’s about the business impact of bureacracy and regulation, not the false cultural presumptions of enviro-disaster underlying those regulations. That fight is still to be engaged, let alone won.
