2019: THE YEAR AHEAD

Welcome to a new year with the Investor Group on Climate Change and the first member meeting of 2019, where we take a look at the year ahead.

As we ended 2018, the IPCC issued their sobering report on 1.5℃ and the need to step up ambition and urgency in tackling climate change.

In Australia and New Zealand, record breaking heat conditions over summer have brought the physical effects of climate change into stark relief, with energy infrastructure and ecosystems struggling to adapt to the new normal.

With an election ahead for Australia and a packed legislative agenda for New Zealand, we know that climate change will take centre stage in the political debate in 2019.

In the year ahead, the UNFCCC will be looking to governments who signed up to the Paris Agreement to ratchet up their 2030 national emission reduction targets and implement a mid-century strategy for decarbonisation.  

Investor action on climate change is also set to step up, with more expectation than ever that investors must be managing climate risk in their portfolios, mobilising capital into low carbon solutions and reporting transparently on strategy and response.

Join us, as we unpack the big issues shaping the landscape for investors in 2019, the major political developments, shifts in market practice and expectations for investor action on climate change in the year ahead.

We will also provide an overview of the major projects and activities IGCC will be undertaking to help our members navigate climate action in 2019, and highlight how you can get involved.
