Climate Change & Business Conference: New Business: Innovating for Climate

The Australia-New Zealand Climate Change & Business Conference is just under 6 weeks away.

Session 2 – New Business: Innovating for Climate

A Zero Carbon Act will bring structure to the national transition to net zero which will inevitably have implications for how kiwis’ do business. Leading climate lawyer Simon Watt will examine what those are. But the legislative framework is only one piece of the puzzle. More and more global and New Zealand businesses are taking the market opportunities a transition to a low carbon economy offers. The questions are why and how? The Sustainable Business Council’s Abbie Reynolds and leading CEOs will explore what’s required to galvanise and facilitate business innovating for climate action.
