About this Event
We are writing to advise that in light of the current advice and updates regarding COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the Future-Proofing Business Symposium that is scheduled for Tuesday 23 June 2020. We have taken this precautionary measure as the safety and well-being of the entire UNSW community is paramount during this time. For more information, please visit our UNSW COVID-19 page for more information.
Please register to stay informed on the upcoming webinar series based on the Future- Proofing Business Symposium.
This summer's tragic bushfires have demonstrated without doubt how rapidly the climate crisis is unfolding. We cannot afford despair or complacency, or even worse, distraction and business-as-usual. UNSW Professor Matthew England warns, ‘avoiding dangerous climate change requires a rapid but fair transition to a new decarbonised global economy. While we have many of the required technologies to succeed at this, time is running out’. The challenge presents both risks and opportunities for business researchers, educators and practitioners.
UNSW Business School will showcase the latest thought leadership for climate mitigation and adaption strategies. Learn from a mix of cutting edge research and practical industry solutions in the areas of:
• managing investor performance and disclosure
• brand management and asset management in the age of climate change
• economic models for future work and sustainable communities
• innovation, technology and AI for tackling climate change
This event brings together academic staff, students and business professionals. We will share ideas, network and form partnerships to ensure that business takes the lead in transitioning to a future that is environmentally sustainable and fair to all.
Places are limited. Please register to express interest now.
