The Climate Change Authority today releases a new research report examining the reorientation in trade and investment that is underway globally as governments, regulators and markets begin transitioning to net zero emissions, and considers what these trends mean for Australia.

‘Trade and investment trends in a decarbonising world’, which is being launched with a panel discussion at COP26 in Glasgow, seeks to add context and clarity as Australian policy makers, companies and investors take steps to address climate change.

The report underpins the Authority’s Paris Plus: From cost to competitive advantage insights paper, and comprises three parts:

  • Investment and finance,
  • International trade and climate policy, and
  • Challenges and opportunities for Australia.

The Authority is also releasing the Paris Plus: Summary presentation. This outlines at a high level the drivers of the low emissions transition and key insights to help build Australia’s competitive advantage in a net zero world.

The Climate Change Authority panel discussion at the Australia Pavilion at COP26 takes place on Wednesday 3 November, 8:00-9:00pm AEDT (Syd/Melb/CBR); 9:00-10:00am GMT (Glasgow). Further information: in a new tab/window)
