24 July 2019, SKYCITY Auckland: Venue information

EMBARK is a one-day event to empower business action on climate change.

It will see those already on a low emissions journey share what they have learnt to help others make faster progress.

During the morning sessions, speakers from the Climate Leaders Coalition including Air New Zealand, NZ Post, Westpac, Z Energy, The Warehouse Group, SKYCITY, Ports of Auckland, Meridian, and Fonterra will talk about what they have done to reduce their emissions. They will also share practical tips to empower businesses to draw up their transition plans, measure their carbon footprints, set an emissions reduction target and finance it.

The afternoon’s facilitated sessions will give businesses the opportunity to meet some of the providers of low emissions products and services who can help them make it happen.

If you are the provider of a product, service or technology that delivers low emissions, EMBARK is your opportunity to be directly connected with your market. The afternoon workshops have been designed to connect businesses with providers that can support with specific challenges, which are identified by attendees when they register. On registration, you’ll be asked to indicate that you are a solution provider, and what aspects of reducing emissions your solution can support.

The aim of EMBARK is that by the end of the day attendees will come away with the building blocks of a great transition plan and will be connected with the people who can help them turn their plan into reality.

The event will also be used to celebrate the first anniversary of the Climate Leaders Coalition, including what it has collectively achieved over the past year, and the launch of a new statement.
