    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.

    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 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.

    The Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC) today said that investors needed a climate policy framework that could stand the test of time and that repealing the carbon price without a clear alternative policy would only create uncertainty.

    “We should not pretend that repealing the carbon price before an alternative climate policy framework is resolved would provide certainty to business or investors, Mr. Frank Pegan, Chair of the IGCC said.

    The Government’s soon to be released Direct Action policy should be examined and compared to carbon pricing to ensure that it could provide a lasting policy framework. Such an examination is in the interest of all those seeking an efficient, effective and lasting climate change policy outcome inAustralia.

    The Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC) welcomes the Climate Change Authority Caps and Targets Review draft report for its pragmatic assessment of the emissions reduction task facing Australia.

    The report reflects analysis by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, International Energy Agency, World Bank and OECD that the forecast 2050 global emissions budget to limit warming to 2 degrees Celsius is running out and that national policy responses should reflect this budget situation.

    The report also demonstrates that other nations are moving steadily forwards on emissions reduction targets and climate policies.

    The Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC) congratulates the Coalition on its federal election win and looks forward to contributing to the Government’s deliberations on climate and energy policy.

    The Coalition made clear before the election its policy to repeal the carbon tax should it win government and the investment community is in no doubt about its intentions.

    Despite this, IGCC does not agree that in the absence of an equally efficient and effective alternative long-term policy framework, that repealing Australia’s carbon pricing framework is good for the economy.

    Responding to the Prime Minister’s announcement today that the floating phase of Australia’s carbon price will commence on July 1, 2014, The Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC) stated that confidence in the longevity of carbon pricing was the highest priority for investors in low carbon investment assets.

    "Knowing that carbon pricing will be here for the long term is more important to investors than the price in any one year," said Nathan Fabian, Chief Executive of the IGCC.

    “If a lower short term price helps business to manage short term carbon costs and makes the framework more secure for the long term, the policy change is welcome,” Mr. Fabian said.
