Climate Change & Business Conference: the countdown is on!

Register now for the key climate change event for 2017 – now just 3 weeks away!

The conference is a one-stop shop to get real-time updates on the fast-moving world of climate change policies. We’ll invite the Minister to outline the new government’s intentions over the next 3 years and beyond. Local and international experts will give specialized commentary on implications for business. Business leaders will respond.

Session 3: Government innovating: beyond the ETS


This session is a stock-take of New Zealand’s climate change effort to date. Our gross emissions are climbing when they are supposed to be falling. What’s the plan? How will the Government support the transition to the New Economy? What does business need? Where are the complementary policies and real innovation? How do we stack up compared to Australia? Are there fresh opportunities for Trans-Tasman business partnerships?
