The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group is proud to be partnering with We Mean Business, CDP, and others on the Australian Climate Leadership Summit.

The summit will bring together major Australian businesses and investors, together with selected representatives from government, investors and NGOs, to announce significant climate commitments. The summit will demonstrate that Australia is ready for a low carbon economy, and that the transition has already begun.

The summit will consolidate the increasing alignment on climate action across diverse sectors, aiming to help ‘unstick’ the climate debate in Australia and shift the conversation as we head towards the next round of international negotiations at COP21 in Paris. The commitments to be showcased are based on established international frameworks.

The summit aims to:

  • Provide a platform for Australian businesses to highlight their leadership on climate change
  • Demonstrate that leading businesses are already taking strategic and operational decisions to transition to a low carbon economy, and that this transition is generating competitive advantage 
  • Provide a forum to facilitate business collaboration and knowledge-sharing on climate action 
  • Connect businesses with state and local governments actively creating the conditions for a low carbon economy 
  • Connect Australian businesses with the global context of business action on climate change 
  • Demonstrate the strong growth opportunities from the transition to a low carbon economy 
  • Help shift the Australian climate change debate from ‘whether / when / how much’ to ‘how’. 

The summit will be attended by senior representatives from: 

  • Major Australian businesses: CEOs, board members and senior executives
  • Australian operations of companies headquartered overseas 
  • Industry associations 
  • State and local governments actively creating the conditions for a low carbon economy 
  • NGOs and academics creating pathways to a low carbon economy.
