Australia-New Zealand Climate Change and Business Conference

The fifth conference was held in Melbourne and was attended by Climate Change Minister Nick Smith.

Climate Change Ministers from New Zealand and Australia came together with business and interest group representatives on the 24th to the 26th of August at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

According to the Conference website, the Australia – New Zealand Climate Change & Business Conference series is the leading conference in the region, engaging mainstream business and policy makers on the climate change issue and helping to facilitate action. The conference series focuses on the risks and opportunities posed to business by global warming and, as an Australia-New Zealand entity, promotes the exchange of ideas and learnings across the Tasman.

The 2009 conference follows on successful events in Auckland (2004 & 2008), Adelaide (2006) and Brisbane (2007). The conference is a not-for-profit venture co-organised by the Climate Change & Business Centre and Point Carbon and is supported by business groups, NGOs and Government agencies in five countries.

Minister for Climate Change Issues, Nick Smith, addressed the conference. His speech can be found at the Beehive website.
