Panel identifies opportunities to reduce emissions

Advice from an expert panel, led by Mr Grant King, provides a robust platform to expand the way Australia is lowering emissions while supporting the economy, businesses and households. The panel looked at ways to unlock low-cost carbon abatement across the economy, particularly in the harder to reach sectors of industry, transport and agriculture.

The panel conducted targeted consultation across these sectors and received over 50 submissions from industry, research organisations and non-government organisations.

The King Review made 26 detailed and technical recommendations.

These include ways to:

  • encourage greater participation in the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF)
  • provide new incentives for voluntary emissions reduction on a broader scale
  • enable low emission technologies
