The Climate Council recommends the following:

Recommendation 1. Consolidate Australia’s comparative advantage in clean energy technologies and build upon the Technology Investment Roadmap by investing in 12 clean policy opportunities to create 76,000 new jobs for Australians, as recommended in the Climate Council’s Clean Jobs Plan. This would supercharge Australia’s economic recovery, support Australian workers, and tackle climate change at the same time.

Recommendation 2. Include a fully-costed response to the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements in the 2021-22 Federal Budget and forward estimates.

Recommendation 3. Scale up Australia’s contribution of international climate finance to AU$3 billion per year in government funding and leveraged private finance, in line with Australia’s fair share based on economic capabilities and historical responsibility for climate change. In addition, rule out any Australian development assistance, trade promotion, foreign investment or export credit for fossil fuels.
