Manufacturing Australia appears broadly unsupportive of ambitious action on climate change and any support for specific pieces of climate policy is often qualified by market-based considerations. In 2018, Manufacturing Australia supported the development of a practical energy policy framework; however, it has also stated that interventions should be temporary and advocated for an approach to emissions reduction based on market measures in 2019. Manufacturing Australia's lobbying on specific climate policy is mixed. Between 2016 and 2019, the organisation has expressed support for the Emissions Reduction Fund, the Renewable Energy Target, the safeguard mechanism and the National Energy Guarantee, but qualified this support with the need to protect trade competitiveness and the economic interests of carbon-intensive industries. In 2019, Manufacturing Australia also opposed regulations on energy efficiency and lobbied against the moratorium on gas development. Although Manufacturing Australia recognises the importance of an energy transition, it has consistently advocated for the sustained role of natural gas in the energy mix. In 2018, it also lobbied government for the continued operation of the Liddell coal plant.
