Event description
Join us on Tuesday 22 June for a virtual panel discussion on 'Climate Change: Unpacking Net Zero'.

About this event

From the impact of devastating bushfires to the existential threat posed by COVID-19, sustainability and business are top of mind for governments and communities worldwide. Our new Centre for Sustainability and Business aims to bring together the brightest minds to advance the practice of sustainability in business. Is absolute zero the next horizon?

Pop the kettle on and join us online for a conversation on ‘Climate change: Unpacking Net Zero’, moderated by the Centre’s Director, Professor Glenn Hoetker, where our expert panelists will explore:

  • What 'zero targets' might mean for different sectors
  • How this is changing, and how fast
  • Whether absolute zero is the next horizon

This webinar will be recorded and available for viewing after the live event.
