Investors identify 7 climate change policy priorities

2 June 2016

The Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC) has today published seven climate change policy priorities which investors believe are critical for managing risk and unlocking investment in low carbon finance opportunities.

“The seven policy priorities identified by investors have to be part of the climate change policy response in Australia to build investor confidence and get capital moving”, said Emma Herd, Chief Executive Officer of the Investor Group on Climate Change.

“Without stable and durable climate change policy settings grounded in broad bipartisan support, investors will not allocate capital to the kinds of long term clean energy and energy productivity investments required to achieve the goals Australia signed up to under the Paris Agreement”.
