Implication for business of the Carbon Polution Reduction Scheme (CPRS)
August 19, 2009 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The CPRS is the Government’s primary policy tool to reduce Australia’s greeenhouse gas emissions, with an emissions trading scheme that seeks to impose caps on certain sectors of the Australian economy. The program is intended to commence operations in 2010. The design and implementation of an emissions trading scheme will have far reaching implications for all Australian businesses – some of the implications include the increased costs associated with putting a price on carbon, risks and opportunities that are likely to arise for high carbon intensive goods and services, and potential for increased costs associated with mitigation and adaption to climate change.
