Feb 23 – Submission on Safeguard mechanism

Key messages

Submission on the basis that, firstly our total opposition to new gas and coal be noted, secondly, that the Safeguard Mechanism (SM) legislation be written in such a way that new gas and coal cannot impact the existing non-gas, non-coal entities. And thirdly, that the gas and coal sector total emissions be progressively reduced (and not by the un-fettered use of offsets).
