AAC Submission on the Draft Report on Australia’s Climate Policy Options

Australian Aluminium Council

This submission is provided in two parts – a response to some statements in the Climate Change Authority’s draft report; and answers to some of the specific questions posed.  Both parts focus on Chapter 5 of the draft report: “Addressing international competitiveness concerns”.

Our main concern is that Australian alumina refineries and aluminium smelters compete directly for markets and investment with facilities in other jurisdictions that are unlikely to face carbon costs for many years.
