Support for the Environment Protection (Sea Dumping) Amendment Bill 2023


The Coalition supports the Environment Protection (Sea Dumping) Amendment (Using New Technologies to Fight Climate Change) Bill 2023. which aims to give expression to two sets of amendments that were made several years ago to the London protocol. In our view, these are each well-intentioned changes, and we stand with the government in supporting the passage of them through the parliament. If the bill is passed, it is likely to provide Australia with improved flexibility and opportunity in relation to the import and export of carbon dioxide streams and the rapidly emerging field of marine geoengineering.

In turn, these changes would be likely to enhance Australia’s capacity, and indeed the capacity of other nations, to reduce carbon emissions.
