The finance industry in New Zealand is gearing up for its part in shifting investment away from emission-intensive activities and towards a lower-emission economy.
We talked to key industry stakeholders who are responsible for shaping this shift.
Hear insights on what the industry can expect coming up, from:
- Minister James Shaw – Minister for Climate Change and Associate Minister for the Environment (Biodiversity) – New Zealand Government
- Dr Amelia Sharman – Director Climate Standards – External Reporting Board
- John Berry – Co-founder, CEO & Resident Wayfinder – Pathfinder Asset Management
- Leeanna Kohn-Hardy – Founder – Finappster
- MC’d by Dr Michelle Dickinson – Co-Founder – NanoGirl Labs
Find out what Minister Shaw meant when he said that finance companies in New Zealand are both leaders and laggards in climate action, what this means practically, and how the XRB has considered this as they shape the implementation framework.
Discover some of the programmes of work that have or are about to be undertaken to put the climate framework into action and resulting impacts to industry, corporates and investors.
We were also fortunate enough that Scott Simpson, Opposition Minister for Climate Change, also attended and was asked to speak about their support for this bill and activities currently being undertaken.
