The Carbon Tax & Your Business

By on February 12, 2012

VECCI’s sustainability consultants are providing Carbon Tax Briefings across Victoria to inform about the risks & opportunities.

WITH the Federal Government’s “Clean Energy Future” package coming into force on 1 July 2012, it’s crucial that employers are prepared for the impacts the new carbon tax legislation will have on their business operations.
