5th Aus-NZ Climate Change and Business Conference

16 April 2009

_5th Australia-New Zealand Climate Change and Business Conference
(Melbourne, 24-26 August 09) - registration now available online

We are pleased to advise that early bird registration for the pre-eminent climate change conference for business in our region is now available. This year's event will focus on three themes:

• domestic and international policy developments in the lead up to Copenhagen
• financing the transition to a low carbon economy in the global financial crisis
• practical advice on how business can respond to climate change.

For the first time, the conference will include an International Expo, organised by our partner Point Carbon, providing the opportunity for climate change and carbon market service providers to highlight their products and services.

The Victorian Government is Foundation Sponsor and Host of the event which will be held in the new six-star Green Star rated Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. Organising support is provided by partners in five countries. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.

Tailored for a business audience, the conference represents a unique opportunity for an interchange of ideas between New Zealand and Australian business leaders and policy makers in the run-up to Copenhagen.
