11th Australia-New Zealand Climate Change & Business Conference
October 9, 2018 @ 8:00 am - October 10, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
After years of slow progress in climate policy, the new government has set New Zealand on a path of profound change. A Climate Commission will plan and monitor the transition to net zero by 2050. This bold target implies fundamental disruption to business as usual. We can expect big land use changes and the rapid deployment of new technologies and innovations across the economy and society.
The 2018 conference will reveal the implications of these changes. Ministers will present a stock-take of progress in the plenary and we’ll run focused workshops on the more challenging issues. The Paris rulebook, the responsibilities of managers and directors, new financial reporting norms and sources of transition financing will all be explored by experts.
Adaptation risks for New Zealand are burgeoning with big implications for communities and insurers.
