Key points from the factsheet
+ Australia can achieve significant pollution reduction
with ongoing economic growth, according to all
credible economic analyses to date. This includes
recent modelling undertaken for the government on
possible post-2020 pollution targets.
+ Delay in establishing a credible and stable policy, however, increases potential economic costs and could lead to the stranding of some assets in high emission sectors (for example, write-downs in the value of coal resources).
+ Current analysis also does not include the rising costs associated with not reducing emissions.
