1 November 2021: The Climate Change Authority’s research report, Trade and Investment Trends in a Decarbonising World examines the global reorientation in trade and investment underway governments, regulators and markets begin transitioning to net zero emissions, and what this mean for Australia.

As major institutions and our trade and investment partners respond to climate change and rapid transformations in the global economy occur, it makes good sense to see reducing emissions as a source of competitive advantage. The report seeks to add context and clarity as Australian policy makers, companies and investors take their own steps to address climate change.

This report support the Authority’s Paris Plus: From Cost to Competitive Advantage Insights Paper published in October 2021. It comprises three parts:

  • investment and finance,
  • international trade and climate policy, and
  • challenges and opportunities for Australia.

The Authority has also released a Paris Plus: Summary Presentation which outlines at a high level the drivers of the low emissions transition and insights to help build Australia’s competitive advantage in a net zero world.
