Australian investors call for ongoing support for the Paris Agreement

2 June 2017

Investors are disappointed at the recent announcement by the Trump Administration to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, and call on the Government to stand by their commitment to tackling climate change.

“The Paris Agreement is key to providing the long term policy signals that investors need to best tackle climate change. Without a clear, stable policy framework and shared goals to work towards, responding to climate change will be harder and more expensive for all countries. We call on governments to stand by the commitments they made under the Paris Agreement to unlock the investment needed to move to a net zero emissions global economy”, said Emma Herd, Chief Executive Officer of the Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC).
