Australia won't meet Paris climate change targets, urgent policy needed on emission reduction: Finkel report


A leaked report into the country's electricity market says Australia is not on track to meet the Paris climate change commitments and that investment in the sector has stalled because there is no long-term Government policy to reduce carbon emissions.

AM has obtained a copy of the preliminary independent report led by Australia's chief scientist Alan Finkel, which will be released later today at the COAG heads of government meeting.

It says there is an urgent need for a clear policy on reducing emissions, there is currently no way Australia can reduce carbon levels to what was promised in the Paris Agreement, and is critical of elements of the Government's Direct Action policy.
