Green Capital: business + environment for a sustainable economy
Where to now for a green economy? Panel and speaker event, 13 September, Sydney NSW
Around Australia conservative parties are being elected to govern, ushering in a new political era for the business of sustainability
So is a green economy on the agenda?
- Is there a new formula for creating green jobs and attracting clean tech innovation and investment?
- Or has a decade of battling over carbon pricing exhausted the political appetite for green economic reforms?
For our next event Green Capital is asking: Where to now for a Green Economy in Australia? with opening remarks by NSW Treasurer Mike Baird and a special panel featuring the NSW Government’s leaders on sustainability, the NSW Minister for Environment and Heritage Robyn Parker and Parliamentary Secretary for Renewable Energy Rob Stokes MP.
Parker and Stokes will be joined on the panel by CPD Executive Director Miriam Lyons and NSW Chief Scientist and Engineer Professor Mary O’Kane. The panel discussion will be followed by a keynote address from GE’s Director of ‘ecomagination’ Ben Waters.
This event is designed to enlighten its audience about what government, business and NGOs can do to keep the momentum going towards sustainability, and how this could affect your business.
