Sustainability consultants explain new carbon pricing regime

The Federal Government's proposed Clean Energy Future legislation may present a risk to some TCF businesses, but it may also present opportunities to others that are prepared to adapt, according to sustainability strategy advisors Net Balance.

Net Balance business consultants Astrid Edwards and Rod Marsh will explain the new carbon pricing legislation in a session at the [eco]logical evolution sustainability workshop and seminar series as part of the trade industry event Fashion Exposed. The event is presented by the TFIA and Sustainable Fashion Australia.

The session will give businesses a broad overview of how the Clean Energy scheme will work and how the impacts are likely to filter down to individual businesses in the TCF sector. Ms Edwards and Mr Marsh will also discuss strategies for adapting to the new requirements.

The impact of the Clean Energy Future legislation will depend on the individual structure of the business, Ms Edwards says. “Some businesses may experience very little impact. For others with high energy and resource inputs, the new regulations will encourage a rethink of their business operations.”

It's worth looking at carbon pricing legislation as an opportunity for businesses to reassess their energy and resource efficiency, as the business case for energy efficiency is well-established, Ms Edwards says. “It is also worth remembering that the carbon price is only one driver in the economy, and needs to be viewed in light of other drivers, including the strength of the Australian dollar”.

The session will also explain how businesses that take a proactive approach to the new legislation may be able to take advantage of grants available from the Federal Government's Clean Technology Program, to help them make changes to their business operations.

'Carbon Pricing Explained' is on at 1pm Monday August 29 at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.
