Telstra stabilised greenhouse gas emissions

Greetings from the Sustainability Plus Technology Forum in Sydney. I missed the opening by Senator Penny Wong, Minister for Climate Change and Water. Bill Bien, Telstra Executive Director, has just claimed that Telstra has stabilised its greenhouse gas emissions and is the largest solar panel user in Australia. He showed covers of reports about this but did not provide a formal reference which I could use to verify the claims. Unfortunately Mr Bien is giving a presentation full of hype and vague claims which is not really convincing at a specialised conference on sustainability. But then he might say the same about my talk later in the day on "Online Collaboration: the future of networking for low emissions projects and companies". ;-)
