Agriculture and the ETS

Direct agricultural emissions will not be brought into the ETS until further notice.

The start date for surrender obligations for biological emissions from agriculture is no longer specified in the legislation. The Government has indicated that biological emissions from agriculture will have surrender obligations in the ETS only if:

  • there are economically viable and practical technologies available to reduce emissions,
  • our trading partners make more progress on tackling their emissions in general.
