At present, two carbon markets exist in Australia: the voluntary carbon market, which provides for participants who make voluntary commitments to offset carbon emissions and the compliance market, where certain entities (liable entities) must surrender one eligible carbon unit for each tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions that they have produced in that year. Liable entities can use Australian carbon credit units to meet their obligations under the carbon pricing mechanism.
The Government has announced details on the repeal of the Clean Energy Act 2011. Further information on the repeal of the Clean Energy Act and the design of the Emissions Reduction Fund is available on the Department of Environment’s website.
