While many in the NZ business sector are getting on with tackling climate change, the public face of New Zealand business has been hijacked in recent weeks by big polluters.

We’ve seen an orchestrated attempt by big business to scuttle proposed climate policies. Many aren’t happy to see their polluting plans challenged, including state-owned polluters like Solid Energy, major electricity users like Rio Tinto (Comalco), and the farming lobby.

Their message is disguised with voodoo economics and scaremongering, but is clearly: “don’t expect us to help New Zealand tackle climate change”.

That is illustrated very well by the ransom note published in Wellington's Dominion Post newspaper this morning on behalf of The Standover Group.

Who is The Standover Group? And did they really call themselves that?? Find out more here: www.standover.co.nz
