I responded to the call for certainty from WA industry after the release of the, now withdrawn, EPA Guidelines on Greenhouse Gas Emissions. 

I tasked the Minister for Energy and the Minister for the Environment to undertake initial consultations with industry and environmental groups to develop a state emissions policy.
