Submission: Emissions Pricing

The Food and Fibre Youth Network do not support the emissions pricing proposal in its current form. We think it is critical to get the balance of the system right and carefully manage the impacts. Therefore it is important to get the settings right including the setting of unique prices, incentive payments, sequestration and emissions reduction targets being science-based and focused on warming impact.

There are many potential negative and far reaching impacts of this proposal on food and fibre producers, the wider community and economy. Three particular areas of concern identified by network members are the economic impact, the impact on mental health and wellbeing and the ability to inspire the next generation and attract and retain the great people needed to continue to make the food and fibre sector the incredible industry that it is.
