The release of the Australian Government’s Securing a Clean Energy Future – the Australian Government’s Climate Change Plan, represents a significant reform for the economy and is designed to transition the country to a clean energy economy through initiatives in four key areas – carbon pricing, renewable energy, energy efficiency and land management.


Businesses of all types and sizes need to prepare for life in a low carbon, clean energy future and ensure they understand the risks and opportunities arising from a price on carbon. They should also analyze their activities, including assessing opportunities for the use of renewables, energy efficiency and low pollution technologies, so the support available through a range of grant and incentive opportunities, is optimized.


This KPMG paper outlines the major programs announced and offers guidance and support in understanding its implications.
