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”.
