What’s next for the New CFI?
Greg Hunt, new Minister for Climate Action, laid out his immediate plans for the CFI in a Speech to the Sydney Institute, 30 May, 2013
“We will hold a White Paper process after the election. It will provide an opportunity for industry to make submissions on issues such as the timing of the auction process and the setting of baselines. We will call for submissions within 30 days of being elected, consult between days 60 and 100, release the White Paper and draft legislation by day 100, receive further feedback and release final legislation by day 150. Our goal is to commence the system on 1 July 2014.
We have already held extensive discussions with all sectors to encourage potential participants to consider how they can engage with Direct Action and create opportunities for generating abatement, so they are fully prepared for its implementation. We are also keen for any suggestions or feedback at this stage, to ensure all potential issues are addressed.
