ABSTRACT
The article discusses the author's views on whether large emitters of greenhouse gases will participate in the Australian Government's proposed Emissions Reduction Fund and the possible risks and benefits of that. Details include the costs associated with improving a facility's emissions intensity determining whether the emitters will invest in such projects and sell the resulting carbon abatement to the Emissions Reduction Fund and a safeguard mechanism to incentivise emitters from defaulting.
