6 About the carbon price 6 +Where does the money go: +Households: tax cuts and benefit payments +Businesses: free permits and technology funding +Clean energy and energy efficiency

7 Impact on inflation 2012 /

8 What does it mean for households? On average $9.10 per week – 80 cents less than estimated by Treasury 8 $2.80 wk $0.40 wk $1.20 wk $4.20 wk (clothes, recreation, etc) $0.00 wk (There will be no price impact on household fuel costs)

9 Past inflation spikes 9 +Smaller than past inflation spikes +Less than half the impact of the mining boom (1.6%) +Smaller than Cyclone Larry (0.8%) +4 times smaller than the GST (2.5%)

13 Assistance 13

14 Smart Consumer 14 Tip 1 Tip 2 Tip 3 Washing clothes in cold water – Save up to $2.25 per week Install water saving shower head - Save up to $5.20 per week Reduce standby power consumption – Save up to $1.75 per week Save money by investing in simple, low cost energy efficiency measures.

15 What does it achieve? 15 The carbon price will be paid by around 500 of Australias biggest polluting companies, not households. It has the potential to cut up to 1.1 billion tonnes of pollution from the atmosphere by This is equivalent to taking 70 million cars permanently off the road Driving investment in cleaner energy sources.
