In his opening statement, the Chair of the Authority Mr Grant King noted that this is a landmark year for the Authority – having celebrated the Authority’s 10th anniversary and now scaling up in response to the Government restoring the Authority’s role in advising on Australia’s emissions reductions targets and climate change policies. 

The Authority’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Brad Archer, reflected on the Authority’s achievements this year, including the recent release of the Review of International Offsets, and looked ahead to the next twelve months during which the Authority will:  

  • provide advice to the Minister for Climate Change and Energy for the first annual statement to the Parliament on climate change; 
  • commence work on its advice for Australia’s next Nationally Determined Contribution;
  • undertake statutory reviews on the Emissions Reduction Fund, National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Scheme and the Safeguard Mechanism; and 
  • continue self-initiated research on Australia’s carbon sequestration potential and industry transition planning. 

 “The Authority plans to expand its in-house expertise in both depth and breadth to deliver on our expanded mandate. The Authority will also deepen its engagement with communities and business in Australia, including First Nations peoples,” Mr Archer said. 

“In all its work, the Authority seeks to embody its principles and values of independence; broad and meaningful outreach and engagement; excellence in research and analysis; transparency; and good governance and accountability.”
