Come for the Program. Stay for our Network.

Each year, hundreds of climate change & business professionals from across business, finance, technology, heavy industry, energy, research, policy and government come together at the Australasian Emissions Reduction Summit to discuss low-carbon solutions and the role for each individual in managing our collective transition to a net-zero future.

The 2018 program is shaping up to again be a world-class event that draws experts and leaders from across the globe. A broad range of industry sectors are represented in official plenary sessions and workshops across the two day program, but the depth of experience – the knowledge sharing and commercial interaction – is augmented by the practitioners in the audience, and the individuals in the room that bring their own experience to bear and their own questions into the nexus that forms.

The Summit really is about what you bring to the table, and how you use the event to your advantage. There is a huge wealth of information and key market trends to draw from the program sessions, but it’s really in the networks you create, and in the personal relationships you form with those attending that will impact how you continue on your low-carbon journey. Over the last few years the Carbon Market Institute has built an ecosystem of all the key players driving Australia’s low-carbon transition within its membership, but more visibly at the Summit. This year will be no different, with 500-600 individuals (climate change and business professionals and thought leaders) connecting and doing business through the varied networking opportunities that sit outside of the official program.

This year the Summit Side Events Program includes our Women in Climate Breakfast, the Great Debate, Day 1 Sundowner Drinks, the 2018 Gala Dinner and Official Afterparty – not to mention the various morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea breaks that present opportunities to connect with your peers and to forge those key relationships that will assist you in the future.

Predominantly, those attending the the Summit consist of individuals who are driving the transition (and understand the risks and opportunities they must manage in their own organisations), and individuals who are looking to understand what they need to know to start their journey (and how they can prosecute the case for action internally at a senior executive and board level). The Summit is the place where everyone has a reason to be in the room, and is a safe environment to ask questions, share your challenges, and to connect and collaborate with others that have the solutions you need.
