Record TXU Buyout Includes Unprecedented Global Warming, Emissions Plan Outside Advocates Help Engineer Course Change Toward Clean, Efficient Vision; Bold Move Signals Beginning of the End for Old-Style Coal Investment in U.S. NEW YORK (February 24, 2007) – The record-setting buyout of the utility giant TXU being proposed by a group of top private equity investors includes an unprecedented set of commitments developed in close consultation with leading environmental experts to reverse the company’s drive to build a new fleet of high-emission coal power plants in favor of a new strategy focused on energy efficiency, clean technology and a commitment to cut global warming pollution, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), which has been involved in the extensive negotiations.

a mandatory nationwide limit on global warming emissions paired with a market-based emissions trading system. They also say they will endorse the positions of the recentlyannounced U.S. Climate Action Partnership, and will seek to formally join the group of companies and environmental organizations already involved.

“This turnaround marks the beginning of a new, competitive focus on clean, efficient, renewable energy strategies to deliver the power we need while cutting global warming emissions,” said NRDC President Frances Beinecke. “It is a big step forward for the State of Texas and for the American energy economy as a whole.”

“What we’re witnessing is the beginning of the end of investments in old-fashioned coal plants,” said David G. Hawkins, a former top EPA official with more than 35 years experience in utility environmental issues, who heads NRDC’s Climate Center. “These are very big investors coming to the energy table with very big ideas about where the competitive market is heading. Strategies to fight global warming and save energy are crucial for anyone hoping to succeed in today’s electricity industry.”

Arrangements with the two buyout firms, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and Texas Pacific Group, include a commitment to withdraw permit applications for eight of eleven pulverized coal power plants proposed in Texas. The prospective owners would also throw their support behind 6

The new company would aim to limit its total CO2 emissions from its generating operations and reduce them over time, and pledge not to propose any additional traditional pulverized coal plants outside Texas.

The new investors also plan to invest $400 million in initiatives to help customers reduce their energy needs www.environmentalcareer.com

over the next five years, a strategy known as “demand-side management” (DSM), as a way to meet Texas energy needs while reducing the need to build expensive new generating capacity. The company will also expand its investment in energy generated from renewable sources including wind and solar, and take steps to increase its own energy efficiency. The bidders say they will also begin to explore a variety of new coal generating technologies including integrated combined cycle gasification (IGCC) and flue gas/algae carbon capture. Finally, executive compensation and performance measurement at the new company would be tied directly to the climate protection goals. There will also be a new, impartial Sustainable Energy Advisory Board consisting of experts in carbon-neutral energy technologies, environmental policy, and Texas reliability standards. The Natural Resources Defense Council is a national, nonprofit organization of scientists, lawyers and environmental specialists dedicated to protecting public health and the environment. Founded in 1970, NRDC has 1.2 million members and online activists, served from offices in New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Beijing.

International Conference on Growth, Conservation and Responsibility: An opportunity to join the global debate

By Paola Gazzola

One of the main problems that our society is facing today is how to reconcile economic growth with the conservation of the environment. Increasing population, the way in which economic growth has and is occurring, the way in which technologies are impacting the environment, together with the existing international Paola Gazzola, IAIA Board Member trends of globalization, standardization, unlimited expansion, and of homologation of lifestyles, appear to be some of the reasons at the source of this problem. Although the need to reconcile and balance environmental aspects with economic aspects emerged in the 1960s, the way in which we think and more importantly, the way in which we live, have yet to change. There is no disagreement that global warming exists. Its effects are becoming more and more visible and reaching critical stages worldwide. The level of atmospheric CO2 is rising very quickly. Glaciers are melting. Habitats are changing. In the last fourteen years, we’ve experienced the ten hottest years on record, with both land and ocean temperatures rising. On the one hand, the warmer oceans mean stronger and more storms, typhoons and hurricanes; on the other hand, other places are becoming drier, due to changing rainfall patterns initiating processes of decertification. Mainstream scientific views, supported by empirical evidence, are suggesting that concentrations of greenhouse gases must peak around 2020 to 2030, and decline thereafter. Consequently, if the mainstream scientific views are accepted, then targets and timetables should be logically deduced. Progress has been made on the Kyoto Protocol and talks are being made about setting further targets and timetables for the reduction of emissions. These are mainly based on political negotiations rather than empirical evidence. However, many countries are far from meeting their existing targets, never mind future ones! Other countries have not even set targets yet. Within this context, cooperation among private corporations,

governments and the general public becomes increasingly necessary, in order to develop a coordinated economywide market driven approach to climate protection, that is globally responsible and based on good governance and corporate stewardship. Described by the UK Prime Minister Tony Blair “as the most important report on the future ever published by the UK government” and showered with praise by many politicians and headline writers worldwide, the Stern Review on the economics of climate change has also indicated that a prompt, efficient and effective investment in the reconciliation of economic growth with environmental conservation and sustainability will pay back in the future, both environmentally and economically. The independent review, released in October 2006, was commissioned to Sir Nicholas Stern, distinguished development economist and former chief economist at the World Bank, by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, reporting to both the Chancellor and to the UK Prime Minister, as a contribution to assessing the evidence and building understanding of the economics of climate change.

“develop international and local capacity to make wise decisions regarding the anticipation, management and planning of environmental change.” IAIA has more than 2,500 members from more than 110 countries, representing environmental practitioners from all sectors: government, industry, training, research, consultancies, and communities. Through its international annual conferences and its widely acclaimed international journal “Impact Assessment and Project Appraisal” (known as IAPA), IAIA provides and continued page 15

The relationship (and reconciliation) between growth, conservation and responsibility is also the conference theme of the 27th annual meeting of the International Association for Impact Assessment (IAIA), which will be held in Seoul, Korea (June 3-9, 2007).

represents a forum for debating important and key issues, “for advancing innovation and communication of best practice in all forms of impact assessment.” Its mission is “to further the development of local, regional and global capacity in impact assessment.” IAIA has now become a leading global authority on best practice use of impact assessment for informed decision-making for sustainability, gaining the respect of the international community, governments, organizations and industry. This year, IAIA will be celebrating its 27th annual conference in Seoul, Korea. Within this context, impact assessment practitioners representing more than 70 countries will debate around the topical theme of “Growth, Conservation and Responsibility.” The challenges that development is facing today and will face in the nearby future, and the role that impact assessment could have in leading development by promoting good governance and corporate stewardship, are themes that will be discussed in further detail. Conference discussions will be initiated by a number of theme forums, for example, looking at whether impact assessment has a role to play in the new era of energy, at how to generate higher-level impact assessment awareness, at the practical implications of using impact assessment to promote wellbeing, sustainability and capacity development. Forums discussing issues of environmental and social leadership in sustainable financial markets, of responsibility in trans boundary contexts, of poverty and inclusion, of biodiversity and conflict-affected areas will also take place. Through IAIA’s successful conference format, IAIA practitioners will discuss and address in Seoul the most important and urgent global environmental problem that our society is facing today. To find out more about IAIA07, go to http://www.iaia.org and click on the “Conferences” link. Everyone is invited to join IAIA and participate to the debate. “Individuals and organizations in research, industry, government, community groups, consultancies or educational institutions wanting to be more informed and participate in the development of better environmental outcomes,” are welcomed, regardless of their level of expertise. IAIA acknowledges the important role that students and early professionals (SEPs) have within the context of achieving good practice impact assessment. SEPs add a significant value and contribution to important world debates, thanks to their fresh perspectives! Within this context, IAIA has instituted a number of initiatives aiming to get students and early professionals more involved with IAIA. These include a: • SEP listserv, representing a forum in which SEPs can discuss and exchange ideas, experiences and opportunities within the field of impact assessment; • Best student poster award competition, representing an opportunity for SEPs to increase their visibility amongst internationally acknowledged experts in the field of impact assessment, and have their poster published in IAIA’s international refereed journal (IAPA); • “Career Central” jobs board on IAIA’s new web site, in which SEPs can expose their profiles and curriculum to potential employees and/or universities; • Special student membership and conference rate to facilitate and make IAIA more accessible for students. Within the context of IAIA’s international conference, IAIA also offers a number of other initiatives, including a fee waiver scheme (for students only) and a mentoring programme (for SEPs). • And a SEP representative on IAIA’s Board of

Directors that can suggest and bring forward to the board new ideas to further help SEPs be actively engaged in IAIA and tailor IAIA’s needs to SEPs’ needs. Students and early professionals interested in promoting, at an international, national and community level, sound decision-making for sustainable development that ensures that environmental, social, economic, cultural and health implications are taken into account, should join IAIA for a number of reasons. By joining IAIA, students and early professionals can meet and discuss with, and learn from, well-acknowledged and experienced international experts in the field of impact assessment, including representatives of government, industry, training, research, consultancies and NGOs. Furthermore, they can meet, interact and establish networking contacts with other students and early professionals from all over the world. Students also benefit by attending IAIA’s international conferences. There, students and early professionals have a great opportunity to explore and expand their career options or explore future employment opportunities by attending IAIA’s environmental career sessions; or furthermore, specialize their preparation and enhance their skills by attending one or more of the wide range of training courses held by top-class experts during conferences. Whether you attend IAIA07 or another environmental event, conferences are a great way for students to get “plugged in” to the environmental field. Attending conferences is not only about listening to speakers, viewing posters, presenting the findings of your latest research project or attending sessions and workshops. There is much more to it! Often, what goes on in between or outside conference sessions or at the organized social events can provide great learning and employment opportunities. The person you casually meet during a coffee break or during a meal or drink could be a future employer, a peer reviewer for a journal article you submit next year, a journal editor, a funding programme officer, a future colleague or a partner of an upcoming research project in which you could be involved. Therefore, making sure you leverage every social opportunity you get to make contacts and network is important to successfully “plug into the event”. You never know what these contacts could bring to you!

Conversations can often be over before you even realize it! Having some business cards ready with your name, affiliation, e-mail address and with two or three words describing your specialization or interests, is also important. They need not to be glossy or color printed; business cards can be simple and inexpensive. They help the person you networked with remember you and get in contact with you once the conference is over. Finally, e-mailing beforehand those key researchers you would like to meet at the conference, briefly telling them why you would like to meet them and making arrangements on how and when to meet, can make your conference networking plans more effective. When establishing these pre-conference contacts make sure that you highlight aspects that are of their interest too; it is important to emphasise that meeting can be beneficial and of interest for both parties. Making contacts is definitely important; but keeping in contact is even more important! Once the conference is over, e-mailing the people you met during the conference, to thank them for their help, to request their presentation or any information mentioned during a conversation can help to develop a basis for maintaining lines of communication throughout the year. Maintaining the established contacts can also help boost opportunities for future collaborations, participations at future events and conferences, as well as generate career opportunities. With its mentoring and “buddy” programme, IAIA helps students and early professionals (SEPs) navigate the conference and presentation format, answer questions, and help the SEPs make contacts with other delegates. Thanks to these programmes, IAIA’s international conferences represent an ideal opportunity for students and early professionals at their first conference experiences, to learn how to get the best out of attending conferences and how to “plug into” the environmental career sector. To find our more about IAIA and how to join IAIA in Seoul and participate to the debate, go to http://www.iaia.org or contact info@iaia.org. Paola Gazzola is a Urban Planner with the Department of Civic Design at the University of Liverpool, and is also a Board Member of IAIA

At some events, you may find mentoring or “buddy” programmes in place, such as those offered by IAIA, that aim to help students and early professionals feel more comfortable and less overwhelmed with their first conference experiences. In other occasions, a student, a professor or an expert senior to you, perhaps from your same university or institution, may introduce you to the conference format and to its participants. But in the majority of the cases, you might be on your own. If this was the case, do not be shy and try to take leadership. Getting actively involved with the conference, by joining committees, participating to meetings or dining out events is a good way to avoid being overwhelmed by the conference and make your first contacts. It often helps to approach first a smaller group than the whole conference at once. Making contacts is therefore very important and your networking skills can be improved in different ways. Improving your ability to talk about yourself and about your research or employment interests in a short amount of time is one of them. Conferences can be very hectic, busy, with people flowing in and out of conversations. Seoul Tower

Ecosystem Modeler - We are seeking applicants for 2 year postdoctoral positions at the NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle. This postdoc will play a key role in developing ecosystem simulation models for the California Current and the Central California Coast. The models will be used for simulation testing of alternative ecosystem-based management strategies for this region. In collaboration with researchers at CSIRO in Australia, we have adopted a modeling framework ( Atlantis) in which ecosystem dynamics are represented by spatially-explicit sub-models that simulate hydrographic processes, biogeochemical factors driving primary production, and food web relations among functional groups. The model represents key exploited species at the level of detail necessary to evaluate direct effects of fishing, and it also represents other anthropogenic and climate impacts on the ecosystem as a whole. The postdoctoral associate’s primary responsibility will be the development of an Atlantis ecosystem model of the Central California Coast. This will benefit from an existing large-scale model of the California Current. Model building involves a literature review, multiple meetings with biologists and data managers, model parameterization, calibration, running scenarios, and documenting and publishing the results.
