About this event

Sustainable finance is worth trillions of dollars and plays a critical role in Australia’s transition towards Net Zero. But what is sustainable finance, where is it heading and how is it relevant to you or your organisation?

Please join us over breakfast to hear from Ian Learmonth, Chief Executive Officer, Clean Energy Finance Corporation, in conversation with Ian Harper, the Dean of Melbourne Business School and a Member of the Reserve Bank Board. In this not-to-be-missed event, we will discuss:

The growth of sustainable finance and related developments

The opportunities, challenges, strategies and impact of the Clean Energy Corporation to date

The implications of sustainable finance on the supply and use of capital

In-person tickets are limited and sold on a first come first serve basis. The event will be live streamed for those not able to join in person.

This event is co-presented by Melbourne Business School and the Centre for Sustainability and Business.
