Carbon Farming Initiative Amendment Bill 2014

Portfolio: Environment
Introduced: House of Representatives, 18 June 2014

1.1        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.

1.2        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'.[1]

1.3                  The committee considers that the bill does not appear to give rise to human rights concerns.
