Event Announcement - Targeting 1.5°C: Pathways to Net Zero and the risks and opportunities for businesses
Climate change is the greatest challenge of our generation.
The world we grew up in is rapidly changing before our eyes, to a reality where volatility is the norm. On our very doorstep, Australians are never too far away from extreme temperatures, drought, bush fires and warming oceans. Scientists have warned that unconstrained climate change will result in ecosystems being irreversibly damaged, food insecurity, financial instability, and mass rebuilding or relocation of communities in our lifetimes.
On 12 December 2015, 195 countries agreed to take action to limit the average global temperature increase to 1.5°C compared to pre-industrial levels by 2050, and signed the Paris Agreement in 2016. In 2020, Australia along with the other 194 signatories submitted the actions they will take to advance this goal.
This forum will explore the climate crisis and the implications of the current state of play. The panel will also discuss the risks and opportunities that the crisis presents for businesses, and how young leaders can drive change in their organisations.
We invite you to join the conversation with our distinguished panellists:
Roundtable discussions with the panellists on three different questions will follow the panel discussion and Q&A.

Never before have we had such an awareness of what we are doing to the planet, and never before have we had the power to do something about that.
