Carbon Markets in Australia: An Update on the Proposed Reforms Seeking to Unlock Low Cost Carbon Abatement Across the Economy

12 November, 08:00 AM – 09:00 AM (CET)

In 2020, an expert panel (known as the King Review) released 26 recommendations for reforms to climate law and policy in Australia, the majority of which have been endorsed by the Australian Government. The recommendations aim to encourage greater participation in Australia's Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF), provide new incentives for voluntary emissions reduction on a broader scale and enable low emission technologies. In this session, legal and industry experts will assess the implications of these recommendations for carbon markets in Australia, their potential to unlock abatement in the harder to abate sectors of industry, transport and agriculture, and whether Australia is on track to achieve its first NDC.
