Growing the economy while reducing pollution: The economic impacts of climate policy Factsheet

Sep 03, 2015 - 12:39pm

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.
