Regional investors support better business reporting 
on climate change through TCFD

Investors across Australia, New Zealand and Asia have welcomed the release of the Financial Stability Board Taskforce on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) final recommendations.

This industry-led taskforce, originally established under the G20, demonstrates that business is developing their own response to climate change as a commercial reality, separate to the policy response. Investors across the region have welcomed the release of the final TCFD recommendations as a significant milestone.

“Investors see climate change as a material financial risk and are calling on business to disclose their 2°C strategy. Boards need a plan for managing climate change risks and opportunities that shareholders can see. Having a globally consistent framework for reporting on material climate change risks will accelerate this trend”, said Emma Herd, Chief Executive Officer of the Investor Group on Climate Change.

Blueprint an opportunity to break the investment deadlock

The Blueprint for the Future released today by the Finkel Review is an important contribution to the climate and energy debate in Australia and offers a real opportunity to build a pathway forward for the energy sector.

“The key issues for investors are whether the blueprint can deliver investor confidence by providing a long term framework for reform across the sector coupled with the ability to flex over time in response to changing technology, market and carbon policy factors”, said Emma Herd, Chief Executive Officer of the Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC).

“The policy framework set out in the Blueprint provides a useful pathway forward and should help smooth out the transition currently sweeping through the energy sector.”

WE ALL HAVE A STAKE IN MOVING FORWARD WITH THE FINKEL REVIEW

The energy industry, its customers and other stakeholders agree: the imminent Finkel Review deserves full and fair consideration before governments take decisions that will have major implications for the security, reliability and affordability of Australia’s electricity system.

Our organisations believe that the worst outcome for energy consumers and suppliers alike would be the absence of any credible and enduring energy and climate policy in Australia. Without reform we will endure higher prices, reduced security, lost investment opportunity, and stubbornly high emissions.

Australian investors call for ongoing support for
the Paris Agreement


Investors are disappointed at the recent announcement by the Trump Administration to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, and call on the Government to stand by their commitment to tackling climate change.

“The Paris Agreement is key to providing the long term policy signals that investors need to best tackle climate change. Without a clear, stable policy framework and shared goals to work towards, responding to climate change will be harder and more expensive for all countries. We call on governments to stand by the commitments they made under the Paris Agreement to unlock the investment needed to move to a net zero emissions global economy”, said Emma Herd, Chief Executive Officer of the Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC).

2017 Climate Change Policy Review an opportunity to address investment uncertainty

The Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC) welcomes the release of the 2017 Climate Policy Review Discussion Paper, as an important new opportunity to agree a productive way forward. 
 
“After more than a decade of policy uncertainty, investors are hungry for a national climate change policy framework which delivers a degree of investment confidence”, said Emma Herd, Chief Executive Officer of the Investor Group on Climate Change.

“In recent weeks, we have seen the direct consequences of failure to plan for the long term and manage transition in the energy sector. The 2017 Review is another major opportunity to put the policy settings in place to unlock investment currently stymied by regulatory uncertainty”.
