Business leaders to address Climate Change & Business Conference

30 September 2016

The Australia – New Zealand Climate change and Business Conference will feature a number of business leaders from a diverse range of sectors, all of whom are providing innovative leadership on mitigation efforts. Speakers from IKEA, NZ Bus, Fonterra, Countdown, Air New Zealand, Westpac and EY will give valuable insights and challenge other businesses to step up and face the climate challenge.

Zero net emissions by mid-century is the target. What responses are needed from business to get there?

It’s not all about waiting for government to tell us what to do. Self-initiated action from progressive businesses can start now. Understanding likely future policy settings helps with priority setting.

Join us for this important event and hear from business leaders.


The conference will be moderated by respected business writer Brian Fallow.
