Ian Dunlop
In a battle that will be a proxy for the political brawl in Canberra and elsewhere between business, climate change believers and the Abbott government, BHP Billiton, the world’s biggest miner, has told shareholders to reject a noted climate change activist who has nominated himself for the company’s board.
The activist – former coal company executive Ian Dunlop – has a resume that would cause any mining company here or around the world to consider him, with decades of high-level experience in the industry. But BHP chairman Jacques Nasser and the rest of the board have resorted to the tired canard that Dunlop is a “single-issue” candidate and therefore not suited to the boardroom of BHP.
