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."
