    Peak investor groups (AIST and IGCC) and The Climate Institute issued a joint call today for regulatory certainty on climate change policy.

    Nathan Fabian, CEO of the IGCC said: “As investors for the long term we consider climate change to present clear investment risks that must be addressed in our investment decision-making.

    “Investors know that long-term returns will best be protected by our transformation to a competitive low-carbon economy.

    “We need the companies we part own to begin their low carbon transformation so they can succeed and provide investment returns over the long-term.

    “A price on carbon, economy-wide targets for renewable energy and public investment in alternative energy sources are all needed to support the transition of our economy and our investments.”

    “Investors see no material earnings risks for emissions-intensive, trade-exposed companies from the early years of a Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS),” Chair of the Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC), Mr Frank Pegan said today.

    “Far from putting companies in financial trouble, the CPRS will have a negligible financial impact on Australian companies in the early years,” Mr Pegan said.

    “The Government’s proposed CPRS has sufficient compensation to ensure that company profits and existing investors will not be impacted over the short to medium term,” Mr. Pegan said.

    The comments are based on analysis performed by IGCC member Goldman Sachs JBWere (GSJBW) on the earnings impact of the Government’s revised CPRS proposals on the S&P/ASX100. GSJBW released the research to clients after the Government’s planned changes to the CPRS were announced on Monday.
