Impartial, independent and constructive, we work across the political divide and bring government and industry together to create realistic and lasting market-based solutions.

National Policy Development

We communicate with Australia’s federal and state political leaders, departments, regulators and agencies overseeing the zero-carbon transition. Our insights and industry leadership enables us to facilitate educative and constructive dialogue with policy makers and provide pragmatic, market-based solutions across party lines. We engage with all sides of politics to encourage a better understanding of market-based approaches to climate policy.

Pragmatic Business Input

As a market-based organisation, the Institute sits at the centre of climate change and business; connecting the dots between thought leadership, policy, business and the evolving carbon market. Whilst facilitating interaction between business and government at critical points in the policy discussion, we make sure our members are always engaged and that a highly informed business voice is heard and valued “inside the tent”.

Sub-national Engagement

We engage with sub-national governments across Australia, to advise on the creation of policy frameworks to catalyse private sector investment and low-carbon growth. With our support, States are translating policy into pragmatic solutions, enabling government and business stakeholders to collaborate and drive the transition to a net-zero carbon economy.
