IPCC climate financing task is achievable

For the first time overnight the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) produced a detailed chapter on climate finance, finding that by redirecting investment flows from emissions intensive to low carbon sources, global warming could still be limited to 2°C the IGCC said today.

“Reaching the $1 trillion of low carbon investment needed globally each year to stabilize the climate is definitely achievable,” said Nathan Fabian, Chief Executive of the IGCC.

Company emissions fell 7% in the first year of the carbon price

Emissions from Australia’s largest emitting companies fell 7% on average in the first year of the carbon price, IGCC analysis of new government data shows.

According to new official data from the Clean Energy Regulator, carbon emissions from Australia’s largest 350 corporate emitters fell from 342 million tonnes in 2011-12 to 321 million tonnes of CO2e in2012-13.

The carbon price applies to around 350 companies with emissions above 25,000 tonnes of emissions per year. Australia’s largest corporate emitters include large electricity generators like AGL Energyand Origin Energy, resources and energy companies like BHP Billiton, Santos, Peabody Energy andWoodside Petroleum and airlines like Qantas.

“The carbon price is designed to encourage companies to find low-cost ways to reduce their emissions,” said Nathan Fabian, Chief Executive of the Investor Group on Climate Change.

CCA report shows a climate policy shock is becoming increasingly likely for Australia

The Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC) welcomes today’s Climate Change Authority (CCA) report but warns that it signals a future policy shock on climate ambition.
 
“In recommending a target range of 40% to 60% reductions by 2030, the CCA is showing the real abatement task facing Australia,” said Nathan Fabian, Chief Executive of the IGCC.
 
“Unfortunately the CCA report is also showing that a future climate policy shock is becoming more likely."
 
Moving from a 5% reduction by 2020 to a 40% - 60% cut by 2030 would be a significant and costly transition for Australia, especially if international abatement becomes more expensive.
