Aligning Policy Engagement with Net Zero - spotlight on Australia

This event is part of a series of webinars around the world on this topic with the first event last year in Japan. It is convened by the Climate Champions' Team & Race to Zero, Better Futures Australia, and InfluenceMap.

Climate policy leadership can incentivise faster climate action, unlock investment and level the playing field for those leading the race to zero emissions.

This online event will explore how Australia, in its future potential position as COP31 host, can become a global leader on climate policy, with supportive engagement from non-state actors. What policy building blocks are needed to drive forward the emission reductions we need in this decisive decade? How can non-state actors, like businesses, investors and cities, be engaged in shaping better climate policy to cut emissions in Australia?

The objectives of this event are to: 

  • Raise the profile of halving emissions by 2030 in Australia; 
  • Mobilise the community in Australia to engage in climate policy discussions; and
  • Showcase the intersection between non-state actor advocacy in Australia, and how this connects with global discussions.
