24 July 2019, SKYCITY Auckland: Venue information

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

The day is by business for business. 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, Vector, 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.

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.
