Safeguard Mechanism Reform Consultation

The Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water (DCCEEW) is consulting on options to reform the Safeguard Mechanism to reduce emissions in line with Australia’s climate targets.

A consultation paper has been released today, seeking views on design issues including:

  • setting baselines for existing and new facilities;
  • setting indicative rates for baseline decline;
  • lowering costs through crediting over performance and the use of offsets;
  • identifying options for tailored treatment for emissions-intensive, trade-exposed businesses; and
  • taking account of available and emerging technologies.

Please forward your comments to ALOA by 10 September 2022 so we can incorporate your views into our submission.
