View Event Recording Here

As the world comes together to address the current health and climate crisis, we believe accelerating Australia’s transition to a zero emissions society is central to our economic recovery and to delivering better futures for us all. Acknowledging that we need everyone – across all walks of life – to realise the opportunities of a zero emissions future, Better Futures Australia works to complement climate work already underway and scale success stories across the country.

This was session 2 of a 3-part webinar series to hear from ambitious and forward thinking corporate and finance sector leaders on the importance of taking climate action today. Watch the recording to hear advice on how to join Australia’s growing community of climate champions that are working to create a prosperous, net zero emissions economy by 2050.
