Submission to Safeguard Mechanism (Crediting) Amendment Bill 2022

The National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) welcomes the opportunity to provide a submission to the Department regarding the Safeguard Mechanism (Crediting) Amendment Bill 2022.

Overall, the Safeguard Mechanism is of little direct concern for the agricultural sector, given it is not classed as emissions intensive, and is not included in the list of the 215 largest greenhouse gas emitters. The NFF did provide a response regarding the Review of the Safeguard Mechanism Reform in September 2022 and would like to reiterate the important impacts the Safeguard Mechanism could have on agriculture.
