Every politician voting on the ETS has a legal and moral responsibility to be impartial and declare any conflicts of interest insofar as whether voting for the ETS will cause them to benefit financially or otherwise in ANY way.
It has come to light that a large amount of investment, superannuation and other funds have heavily invested in ‘green’ businesses. Senators need to perform due diligence to ensure they do not benefit directly or indirectly from any holdings they or their funds have and be completely transparent to the Parliament and the Australian public.
This transparency would include declaring any shares or investments held directly or indirectly by them that could improve in value as a result of supporting the ETS and that could bring into question the required need for them to be impartial.
