Coalition climate change policy

The Coalition?s climate change policy strikes at the real intent of pricing carbon ? providing an incentive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions without negatively impacting on jobs, investment, exports and growth. The Minerals Council of Australia welcomes the shift to a policy designed to use incentives as a driver to reduce emissions rather than an approach that is pre-occupied with penalising business to raise revenue.
