2017 Summit

About The 2017 Climate Change Investment and Finance Summit

The IGCC 2017 Summit is a unique event where institutional investors come together to discuss climate change risks and opportunities and implications for investment policy and practice. The theme of the Summit is ACTION YIELDS RETURNS.

Climate change is now widely recognised as a major financial risk for business and for investors.  Getting the transition right will also create significant new investment opportunities. In Australia, the energy sector is facing major disruption and the 2017 Climate Change Policy review is underway. Investors across the region are looking to act to protect returns and prosper.

The IGCC 2017 Summit will showcase how investors are actively exploring their role and emerging opportunities in the transition to a net zero economy by 2050 to limit global warming to below 2C,  and the challenges that creates for business, markets, policy and the communities that are at the forefront of this transition.
