The Australian Institute of Petroleum (AIP) appears to have had limited engagement on climate policy. Where it has engaged, however, AIP appears to be broadly unsupportive of action on climate change and has lobbied government to delay or weaken ambitious policy interventions.

The Australian Institute of Petroleum appears to support mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions, however, has also advocated the use of international units to meet domestic emissions reductions.

In 2016, the Australian Institute of Petroleum lobbied against a proposal to increase the ambition of the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target. It has also lobbied for exemptions for EITE industries from both federal and state level renewable energy targets in 2017 and 2016 respectively.

The organization has repeatedly opposed more ambitious fuel standards in the transport sector; in 2017, it successfully lobbied against a proposal to bring fuel standards in line with European regulations, and also successfully delayed the implementation of the weaker policy until 2027. The Australian Institute of Petroleum also opposed policy mandates designed to increase demand for alternative fuels such as biofuels, although the organization appears to support the role of such fuels in the energy mix. Furthermore in 2020, the organisation advocated the removal of excise concessions on alternative fuels to petroleum.

The Australian Institute of Petroleum has dedicated disclosures for its corporate membership and public policy positions on its corporate website, but does not disclose its board membership.
