I move:

That the Senate endorses the climate change action plan proposed by the Australian Council of Trade Unions, including its call for:
government subsidies for energy efficient retrofitting of buildings;
mandatory green building codes;
large-scale reuse of treated effluent;
improved vehicle fuel efficiency;
greater use of shipping to cut greenhouse gas emissions;
the right to reject work which harms the environment; and
a mandatory renewable energy target of 10 per cent, as called for by the Australian Greens in 2002.

Question put.
