Posted in // Government, Submissions

During 2008 ICANZ made a detailed submission to the Garnaut Climate Change Review following the release of the Interim Report. ICANZ shared the view that Australia’s interests are best served by a strong global position on greenhouse mitigation. ICANZ endorsed the need for an Emissions Trading Scheme and supported measures by government to eliminate market failures combined with assistance for the less well off.

ICANZ presented extensive evidence to show the contribution made by insulation in improving energy efficiency and reducing the need for energy, thereby insulating us from price increases and buying time to plan for clean energy and developing more cost effective technologies.
