CDP Annual Awards Launch in Australia
Time & Location
About the Event
As we mark the Paris Agreement's 5th anniversary, it is vital that corporations and policymakers raise their ambition for climate action, ramp up efforts to reach net-zero by 2050 and build resilience against future risks.
This virtual event will bring together stakeholders from the corporations, institutional investors, governments, and non-profits, and explore the commitments and urgent action needed in this new decade in order to avoid catastrophic climate change and achieve a sustainable future.
We will also recognize the achievement of companies and cities leading the way on environmental action in the region, including those named on this year’s A List.
Join us as we present our in-depth analysis from CDP’s 2020 disclosure cycle, and engage in a multi-stakeholder expert panel on "corporate insights on decarbonisation and exploring financing solutions for a low carbon Australia."
