Westpac Smarts: Navigating Sustainability from a Climate Investor’s Perspective

Date: Friday 3 Dec 2021     Time: 12pm to 1:30pm

Venue: Wellington Chamber of Commerce, Level 7, 3-11 Hunter Street, Wellington, New Zealand

*Due to the change in Alert Levels we have had to postpone this event. New date TBC.*

Whether it is David Attenborough in a Netflix special, protestors on the steps of parliament or the Climate Change Commissioner’s recent report, discussions around what climate change means for us all cannot be ignored.

At our next highly popular Westpac Smarts event, Craig Weise, Chief Executive of New Zealand Green Investment Finance, will discuss what it all means for businesses navigating the complex landscape of sustainability and climate change.

Craig will cover factors that contribute to the complexity of this challenge, including trends, regulations, consumer preferences and social license. From this, Craig will explore how your business can get started on the journey to financially responsible sustainability, including:

  • What are the common challenges?
  • Who can assist?
  • What are the potential opportunities?

He will also look at the practical economics of low carbon solutions and explore how a low carbon lens can be a powerful business performance tool in disguise.

This event is free for members and given that our member survey highlighted that sustainability is a topic our members worry about, this event is well timed.

Reserve your seats today and we look forward to seeing you June 25th.
