The IGCC 2015 Climate Change Investment and Finance Summit is a unique event, in a catalytic year of progress as governments, capital markets and society address the economics of climate change. As economic growth decoupled from emissions for the first time in 2014 (IEA) and with the historic June G7 announcement in Germany to decarbonise the global economy, a turning point in the transition to the low carbon economy was reached, from which there is ‘No turning back’.
The Summit will draw on local and international actions and political will to expedite the low carbon transition in Australia.
The Summit will provide an opportunity to engage directly with key local and international investors, financiers, and policy makers to specifically address and accelerate the solutions to climate change. Additionally, it is a platform to showcase your organisation’s expertise, thought leadership and product innovation in investment and finance as it relates to climate change practice and implementation.
