A detailed look at Australia’s abatement challenge

The cost of future greenhouse gas emissions abatement is dependant on the size of the challenge facing Australia in order to achieve it’s climate commitments.

Given the changing nature of Australia’s policy landscape, in this Market Briefing we review the potential implications for the governments’ proposed Direct Action Plan in order to understand how Australia’s abatement challenge may translate into an annual abatement trajectory – a key driver of the emerging DAP-ERF market.
