Carbon pricing remains the most effective and economically responsible approach to reducing emissions. The carbon price is working to cut emissions.

What the fixed-price period shows is that it provides certainty to business while the scheme is introduced, kick-starting the investment in renewable energy and clean technologies which will transform our economy.
