Glencore’s senior executive Peter Freyberg said that the Finkel Review recommendations do not provide certainty for investors after a decade of policy failure, and that the Renewable Energy Target needs to go.

Freyberg also said that Australia should have a leading role in promoting higher-energy, lower-emissions plants and carbon capture and storage.
