While a number of technologies and other methods are available to achieve radical reductions in greenhouse gas emissions (most but not all involving energy efficiency, fuel switching, and decarbonised electricity), there are numerous legal impediments to implementing these technologies and methods at the necessary scale and speed. Legal Pathways to Deep Decarbonisation in Australia identifies these impediments and analyses ways to surmount them. Policy makers and lawyers can then pursue these legal pathways and allow clean technology and other methods to achieve their potential.
This title will be a useful resource to government officials, energy industry (both fossil and renewable) executives, and environmental and climate advocates.
• An edited collection book that identifies a wide range of legal pathways for reducing Australian greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
• Examines the legal impediments from various perspectives:
o Free trade agreements
o Human rights
o Carbon pricing
o Framework climate change laws
o Climate change, corporate governance and stock market disclosure
o Hydrogen regulation in Australia
o Legal approaches to addressing extreme temperatures in buildings
o Issues contributing to the regulatory barriers in law, design, and road safety, that together impede better uptake of cycling and walking as a mode of transport for short trips
o Policy changes, budget allocations and tax legislation affecting the uptake of affordable zero electric vehicles by business fleets in Australia
