Investors need credible emissions reduction targets
The Investor Group on Climate Change welcomes the release of the Government’s interim post 2020 emissions reduction target.
In assessing Australia’s future emissions reduction targets, institutional investors expect credible, transparent, long-term policy frameworks which generate investor confidence.
“The key question for investors is whether Australia’s target will deliver a credible signal for capital in managing the transition to a low carbon economy. We are concerned that a target of 26% by 2030 from a 2005 baseline will not deliver the certainty that investors are looking for” said Emma Herd, CEO of the Investor Group on Climate Change.

Broad alliance points to common ground on climate policy
The Australian Climate Roundtable, an unprecedented alliance of major Australian business, union, research, environment, investor and social groups has come together to put the climate policy debate on common ground and offer a way forward.
The Australian Climate Roundtable discussions have involved the Australian Aluminium Council, the Australian Conservation Foundation, the Australian Council of Social Service, the Australian Council of Trade Unions, the Australian Industry Group, the Business Council of Australia, The Climate Institute, the Energy Supply Association of Australia, the Investor Group on Climate Change and WWF Australia.
