This chapter examines the recent developments in climate policy in Australia, with a specific focus on the recently introduced legislation for emissions trading in Australia. It also considers the newly implemented mandatory greenhouse and energy reporting regulations, which provide detail on the mandatory corporate greenhouse emissions and energy reporting scheme, and the design proposals for an expanded national renewable energy target. The chapter concludes by considering some recent developments in the voluntary carbon market in Australia, including the investigation by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) into ‘green’ marketing.
