Funding Australia's Path to Net Zero Emissions - Budget implications for climate solutions

The May IGCC Member Briefing promises something different.

It will be an official part of a new initiative, Climate Action Week Sydney, which IGCC is proud to support.

For the first time, IGCC will be opening up to the public.

The Topic

The Prime Minister recently announced his vision for a ‘Future Made in Australia‘, aiming for a competitive, decarbonised and climate-resilient Australian economy.

The Federal Budget, to be delivered the day before our briefing, promises more details on how the Australian government plans to achieve this vision.

Join us for our upcoming open briefing, where IGCC and Rod Sims, Chair of The Superpower Institute will:

  • delve into the Budget and its implications for climate solutions; and
  • discuss how Budget decisions will help to mobilise private capital to reduce emissions.

For this online-only event, members of the public who are interested in this crucial topic will be able to join the briefing – and get a sense of IGCC’s work.

This online-only meeting is open to IGCC members and the general public, and will be recorded. We look forward to welcoming our members back to the normal hybrid in-person/virtual meeting format at our June Member Meeting.

Registrations are closed now. We thank all our attendees for joining us for this Member Briefing.
