Emissions Trading & the Mining Industry


Introduction to emissions trading and the carbon Pollution reduction Scheme.


Organisations need to understand the Carbon Reduction Scheme to; control the cost of compliance, determine if they can pass the cost of carbon through to their customers, and determine how carbon costs might be passed up through their supply chain. Each organisation will need to factor the carbon price into their business plans and develop a portfolio of options to minimise the marginal cost of abatement. This course will prepare you for the changes ahead, explaining obligations and the tools you can use to evaluate the impact on your business.
