COALITION WELCOMES CHUBB REVIEW
The Coalition welcomes the release of the independent review of the Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCU) scheme led by former chief scientist Ian Chubb.
Despite the Albanese Labor Government’s unfounded accusations about the ACCU program, this comprehensive review has found that the scheme is fundamentally sound and has been operating effectively.
The outcome of this review should provide the Australian people with supreme confidence that the ACCU program is fit for purpose and will continue to play an important role in supporting Australia to decarbonise its economy.
Afterall, an effective carbon credit scheme will be integral to Australia’s ambition to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
