The Business Council of Australia's missing millions

23 Mar 2009
Description

This policy brief argues that over the last twelve months the Business Council of Australia and several of its big polluting members have sought to stall and undermine Australia’s progress to a low-carbon economy.

In support of its case for free permits for its highest polluting members, the BCA released a report, Modelling success: designing an ETS that works, warning of dire onsequences for its members under the CPRS. However, the BCA’s modelling assumed that there were no opportunities for energy efficiency savings or other abatement opportunities for the major polluters – a flawed assumption according to information provided by the polluters’ themselves.
