EDOs of Australia supports the Bill’s rationale and intent to introduce new mandatory carbon pollution standards for light vehicles in Australia. 

Such standards are a cost effective way to contribute to Australia’s mitigation challenge, as a part of a broader set of emission reduction policies. These standards could be given effect either as a standalone Act or as a new part in the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 (Cth).

The Committee should also consider increasing the level of penalties, remedies and cost recovery options under the Bill.
