Carbon Farming Initiative Amendment Bill
Introduced: House of
Representatives, 18 June 2014
The Carbon Farming Initiative Amendment Bill 2014 seeks to amend the Carbon
Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011, the National Greenhouse
and Energy Reporting Act 2007, the Australian National Registry of
Emissions Units Act 2011 and the Clean Energy Regulator Act 2011 to
provide for the establishment of the Emissions Reduction Fund.
The bill is accompanied by a statement of compatibility which concludes
that the bill 'is compatible with human rights because the only potential
limitations on human rights that the bill imposes relate to the right to
privacy and the limits are reasonable, necessary and proportionate in achieving
the bills' legitimate policy objectives'.
The committee considers that the bill does not appear to give
rise to human rights concerns.
