Review of Climate Change Policies 2017

The Property Council of Australia welcomes the Review of Climate Change Policies and the opportunity to comment on the discussion paper released by the Department of Environment and Energy (the Department).

We welcome the Department’s approach in the discussion paper to examine the challenges and the opportunities for emissions reduction across each sector of Australian economy. The potential of Australia’s built environment to reduce emissions should not be underestimated: Australia’s buildings could meet over half the National Energy Productivity Target (NEPP) and a quarter of the national emissions target with the right policies and incentives in place.
