Westpac Smarts - Navigating Sustainability from a Climate Investor’s Perspective
Whether it is David Attenborough in a Netflix special, protestors on the steps of parliament or the Climate Change Commissioner’s recent report, discussions around what climate change means for us all cannot be ignored.

At our next highly popular Westpac Smarts event, Craig Weise, Chief Executive of New Zealand Green Investment Finance, will discuss what it all means for businesses navigating the complex landscape of sustainability and climate change.

Craig will cover factors that contribute to the complexity of this challenge, including trends, regulations, consumer preferences and social license. From this, Craig will explore how your business can get started on the journey to financially responsible sustainability, including:

- What are the common challenges?
- Who can assist?
- What are the potential opportunities?

He will also look at the practical economics of low carbon solutions and explore how a low carbon lens can be a powerful business performance tool in disguise.
