Canberra Business Chamber held a business briefing on 28 June 2016 that identified key risks to business from climate change, the current direction of climate change policy in the ACT and what business opportunities may arise.
Climate change poses a significant challenge but also offers significant opportunities. In 2013 the climate change industry in the United States was estimated at more than $300 billion and $1.4 trillion worldwide.
Speaking at the briefing was Dr Fabian Sack, Director of Sustainably Pty Ltd, who spoke on Climate Change and Business Risk and Antonio Mozqueira, Manager of Climate Change Policy at ACT Goverment’s Environment and Planning Department who spoke on Government Climate Change Policies and Directions.
