AFPA commends the Government on their determination to maintain the commitment of the previous Government to unconditionally reduce national GHG emissions by 5 per cent over 2000 levels by 2020. We also recognise that following the September 2013 election the Government was given a clear mandate to remove the current carbon tax.

AFPA strongly supports the removal of the current carbon tax and encourages the Government to act quickly, as it is in our national interest that businesses have policy certainty and clarity, as well as a level playing field with our major trading partners.
