Spotlight on Australia: Policy, Business and Market update

Organizer: Carbon Market Institute

Date: Wed / Dec. 9 - 14:30

Time: 14:30

Area: Blue Zone

Australian climate policy, and the business response to climate change, have been on a rollercoaster for the last few years, and with an election year ahead there are a few twists and turns to come. This workshop will involve leaders from Federal and State Government, business and academia to discuss and debate;  the current state of play in Australia, the Government’s plan to meet 2030 targets, how the Emissions Reduction Fund is operating, the potential effectiveness of a safeguard mechanism under which large emitting facilities will be required to stay below an emissions baseline, the developments at the state level, the domestic carbon market and the ways businesses are starting to carve out leadership positions.
