Environment Business Australia (EBA) has put forward six key climate change recommendations to the new Australian Government, including climate bonds and a Green Investment Bank. EBA's Fiona Wain was first briefed on the Climate Bonds Initiative at the Copenhagen Conference last December.
The climate bonds and Green Investment Bank proposals have also been presented to MPs in the new Australian Government and, in particular, to the Treasurer's office, by policy group Labor Environmental Action Network. The proposals, part of a basket of proposals, have apparently been well-received. Watch this space for further news.
