The Facts about a Price on Carbon

Join me on 9 November at 6.30pm to find out the real impacts of a price on carbon and the opportunity to ask the experts the facts.

Climate change is real and over 90 cities around the world are working to reduce their emissions to secure our world for future generations.

Here at the City of Sydney we have set an ambitious target of reducing our carbon emissions by 70 per cent by 2030. Our groundbreaking work on local energy generation, recycled water and waste management has already numerous identified opportunities and strategies to help us met this target. These projects, along with our programs working with business and residential communities, will go a long way to reduce and ultimately remove the City's reliance on coal-fired electricity.

The City has invited small and big business leaders, policy makers and the experts to explain how a price on carbon works and how it will affect you.

Guest speakers include: Minister for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency Greg Combet; Minister for Human Services and Social Inclusion and Federal Member for Sydney Tanya Plibersek; Company Director and Writer Geoffrey Cousins; the CEO of Sustainable Business Australia Limited Andrew Petersen and the Sydney Morning Herald's Economics Editor Ross Gittins.
