Review of international offsets

On 7 March 2022, the Authority released a consultation paper to help inform its special review into international carbon offsets.

Consultation through written submissions for this review has closed. We thank those who have taken the time to provide a submission or speak with us. The Authority is currently considering the submissions received. 

The Authority's review responds to a request by the Minister for Industry, Energy and Emissions Reduction, the Hon Angus Taylor MP, relating to the use of international offsets for carbon abatement under Climate Active  and the creation or use of offsets as part of the Indo-Pacific Carbon Offsets Scheme in the context of the Paris Agreement.
