The Climate Institute (TCI) welcomes the opportunity to submit its views to the Joint Select Committee on Australia's Clean Energy Future Legislation on the Clean Energy Future legislative package released by the Government in July 2011.
Overall the amendments to the Bill substantively address many of TCI concerns with the draft legislation. Appendix 1 outlines outstanding issues that remain to be resolved in a satisfactory manner and TCI would be happy to speak to this submission at the Committee's convenience.
However, it is critical that the Bills are now passed, without delay, to put a price and limit on pollution, provide the certainty to invest in clean energy and begin contributing to Australia's fair share internationally.
