This session will provide a deeper discussion on how businesses can participate in Australia’s domestic and international carbon markets, including some of the more practical elements of engagement. Our introduction will be followed by a high-level discussion on key reforms to support the evolution of Australia’s domestic markets, including the Safeguard Mechanism. This program will be delivered in two parts:
Part 1 will focus on where to start with respect to domestic markets — key issues, relationships, price discovery and negotiations, supporting tools/platforms and market liquidity — as well as considerations around international market engagement when looking to procure international units.
