Event Details

We’re entering an era of unprecedented commercial change. Our energy systems, our cities, and our food production – and everything connected to them – will be transformed.

The speed, complexity and diversity of change is unpredictable. The operating scenario for every business sector has already begun to transform, and our banking and financial sectors are responding. 

This is the backdrop for the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). The calibre of its many supporters tells a compelling story: climate change means serious business change. Heightened financial risks will blend with commercial change and opportunity. 

The Climate Alliance 2017 National Conference offers you the opportunity to learn more about the key dynamics that will shape new operating scenarios for business.

This year's conference will focus on the assessment and disclosure of climate-related risk. We’ll examine what the physical and legislative impacts of climate change mean for global financial practices and your business.

We are pleased to introduce an excellent group of speakers who are at the centre of the changes: 

  • Fiona Wild, VP Climate Change and Sustainability at BHP, will outline the work the TCFD has done to date, provide an overview of their recommendations, and a snapshot of what is coming.
  • Dr Paul Fisher will speak about the wider policy risks from the transition, in particular how the EU is developing a comprehensive policy agenda on Sustainable Finance.
  • Chloe Munro, former Chair of the Clean Energy Regulator and member of the Finkel Review panel, will cover how the Australian energy market could tackle the transition risks to a lower-carbon economy.
  • Dr Karl Mallon, Director, Climate Risk, will discuss hostile analytics: how the physical climate change risks to infrastructure and property can now be assessed by investors and competitors, with or without the disclosure of their corporate owners.


Each speaker will address the conference and then participate in a panel moderated by our MC, Mr Adrian King, Partner in Charge, Sustainability Services, KPMG Australia. 

The winners of the 2017 Leadership Awards will be announced at the conclusion of the conference. The awards recognise Australian business leaders and organisations that have demonstrated leadership by addressing the opportunities or risks presented by climate change. Four categories of business leadership awards are available:

  • Board Leadership of the Year
  • Company Secretary of the Year
  • Business Leader of the Year
  • Innovator/Exporter of the Year
