Submission to the Australian Prudential Regulatory Authority Submission

Dec 16, 2011 - 12:00am

As governments inevitably move to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, carbon pricing will have an effect on the values of a broad range of companies across the global economy. As the value of the companies in which superannuation funds are invested is impacted by policies to deal with climate change, the future retirement incomes of all Australians will be impacted.

This submission outlines The Climate Institute’s views, in the context of proposed Prudential Standard SPS 220 Risk Management, on how the Australian Prudential Regulatory Authority’s new prudential standards for the superannuation can help facilitate Australia’s transition to a low-carbon economy and in doing so help safeguard the financial future of Australia’s present and future retirees.
