Climate change has immense ramifications for us all. The Australian Government has announced a package of measures on this crucial issue, including putting a price on carbon emissions and the Clean Energy Future plan. This plan initiates a fundamental change for the Australian economy. We see it as an opportunity to refocus manufacturing and to generate jobs in the Australian manufacturing industry. The Government is committed to supporting Australian industry and households to adapt to a carbon constrained future and keep our industry internationally competitive and environmentally responsible.
A key element of the Clean Energy Future plan is the Government’s new $1.2 billion Clean Technology Program. It has three elements:
The Government aims to ensure that each program is structured in a way that best meets the needs of industry in responding to climate change. Hence, this discussion paper is seeking your views on a range of issues in the design of the programs. Your views will inform the Government in finalising the guidelines that will govern the shape and delivery of the programs.
I commend the Clean Technology Program to you. I encourage you to make your views known through written submissions or through participation in public fora that will be conducted around the country. This is an important step towards Australia tackling climate change for the benefit of our long term future.
Senator the Hon Kim Carr
Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research
