Carbon Price Plan

Home/Climate Grants/Carbon Price Plan

Carbon Price Plan

The carbon price provides an incentive for businesses with the highest levels of pollution to reduce their pollution.

The Government says they will then use every cent raised to:

  • Assist families with household bills
  • Help businesses make the transition to a clean energy economy
  • Tackle climate change

An initial fixed carbon price will provide businesses with a stable and predictable platform to transition to a ‘cap and trade’ emissions trading scheme that will be linked to international carbon markets.

The public and interested parties who wish to provide input on this approach should contact:, or write to:
