Innovating Net-Zero

16 February @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Innovating Net-Zero

Sustainable practices are understood to be an imperative for all organisations. 

We need a shift in focus towards HOW we innovate sustainable strategies and technologies to meet Net-Zero targets. 

In the wake of COP27 and the Non-State Entities Report, emphasis should be placed on how we utilize innovative technologies and systems to assist organizations and sectors in adjusting to the net-zero challenge.

How can sustainable innovation undergird the streamlining of processes and improve organisation’s capacity?

We are thrilled to have such a fantastic line-up of leading experts in the field, who will be sharing their insights on how sustainable innovation can achieve net-zero targets:

Peter Newman (Curtin University): Why innovation is desperately needed to meet net-zero targets

  • The outcomes of COP27 and the Non-state Entities Report force net-zero targets to get serious
  • How finance is driving the agenda and funding innovation
  • WA’s special role in rooftop solar and this year in Trackless Trams
  • Can mining make it?

Nicole Lockwood (Lockwood Advisory): The role of government in achieving net-zero

  • The WA State Infrastructure Strategy and Government’s role in reaching our net-zero targets
  • WA State Government initiatives are accelerating the path to decarbonisation
  • Significance of such initiatives in forging collaboration between industry and government to achieve net-zero

Michele Villa (GHD): The power of collaboration – Innovation in decarbonisation and sustainable practices

  • Achieving net-zero requires concerted action across the economy and within production sectors
  • Collaboration is paramount to accelerating deployment of technology and conservation of money and resources
  • How to make it happen? Things are changing in the mining industry

Vanessa Rauland (ClimateClever): What net zero actually means and how to get there

  • Why ALL businesses need to start their net zero journey now
  • The evolving field of carbon accounting
  • Scope 3 emissions and supply chain tracking
  • How innovative new platforms like ClimateClever can help streamline the process

The evening will run as follows –

  • 5:20pm – Introduction
  • 5:30pm – Presentations
  • 6:10pm – Q&A
