The systems and industries that underpin Australia’s regional economies are facing significant change and disruption due to efforts to decarbonise the Nation’s economy and limit global warming. These pressures necessitate the development of new industries and technologies as well as innovative models of business, governance and welfare. All this work needs investment!
Deloitte Access Economics estimates that over $400 billion of private and public investment is required to transform Australia’s emission-intensive economy into a productive and competitive net-zero economy by 2050.
The Transitioning Gladstone Investor Experience offers investors and philanthropists a unique opportunity to learn firsthand from local leaders and international experts about what it will take to ensure that Australia’s transition is well-resourced.
The 3-day program, based in Central Queensland’s Gladstone region, will showcase a range of industry and community projects that are contributing to a climate-resilient, decarbonised and socially just future, with participants having the opportunity to meet with business and community leaders and Traditional Owners in an industrial region at the forefront of the transition.
Participants will also have the chance to learn from and connect with leading International and Australian transition experts to explore what it will take to unlock lasting investment opportunities, to enable a truly just transition at the pace needed to meet Australia’s net zero ambitions.
