Submission to the Australian Governments 2017 Review of Climate Change Policies
The Climate Institute and AGL have called on the federal government, as an outcome of its 2017 climate change policy review, to set a 2050 emissions target. The jointly authored policy paper, Reducing the horizons of uncertainty: Setting Australia’s post-2030 emission goal, also recommends the government define a process for achieving this target by mid-century, submit this strategy to the UNFCCC before the end of 2018, in accordance with the Paris Agreement, and review the target every five years from 2022 onwards.
This policy brief outlines the role that long-term emissions targets play in setting government policy and guiding business strategies.
The past two years have seen significant shifts in corporate activity regarding climate change. For businesses, the entry into force of the Paris Agreement has perhaps been the key catalyst to contemplate a future policy environment consistent with its objective of limiting global warming to well below 2°C. Some companies are committing to and disclosing carbon targets informed by the Paris Agreement. Others have performed and published scenario analyses showing the impacts on the business from various climate policy futures. This report provides a status update of corporate responses to the 1.5-2°C objective. It also, identifies gaps and challenges, and their implications, and offers recommendations for driving strong responses and more meaningful disclosures. In sharing the experiences from those in the vanguard of climate risk response, we hope that others contemplating action may benefit from lessons learnt so far in this area of increasing importance.
