The Australian Government is undertaking an independent review of the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Act 2012 (GEMS Act).

The review is a statutory requirement to ensure the GEMS Act remains appropriate and effective in reducing Australia’s energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

On 19 January 2018 the Minister for the Environment and Energy announced the first independent review of the operation of the GEMS Act. Ms Anna Collyer, a partner at law firm Allens, has been appointed to undertake the review.
