EMISSIONS REDUCTION SCHEME
On 1 July 2012, the Australian Government introduced a $23 per tonne carbon price on greenhouse emissions, to be paid directly by Australia's largest greenhouse gas emitting companies, together with compensation and incentive packages.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) released an Information Paper: Recording emissions reduction schemes in ABS statistics (cat. no. 5257.0.55.001) on 30 July 2012. This information paper summarises the nature of emissions permits measures introduced under the Clean Energy Act 2011, and how the ABS expects to include estimates of various carbon credit schemes in economic and environment statistics, commencing with the September quarter 2012.
This issue incorporates the Emissions reduction scheme along with Renewable Energy Certificates, which are discussed in more detail in the 'Analysis of Results' section in Australian System of National Accounts (ABS cat. no. 5204.0).
