Mind the Heat: Climate Change & Directors' Duties


Mind the Heat: Climate Change & Directors' Duties



Take your pick: 1.5°, 2° or 3° of climate warming. What is clear is, New Zealand must transition to a climate change-resilient economy. A key governance challenge for all directors is what this means for their business.

The Institute of Directors, in partnership with the Climate Change and Business Conference, present three thought-leading speakers on:

Why the Reserve Bank and prudential regulators overseas are concerned about climate change, and why it matters for our financial institutions and economy

Why all directors and fund managers should be concerned about climate change, and what they can do about it

How to build climate change resilience through governance decisions and reporting

The conference’s first session following the breakfast places a microscope on the financial system’s future and introduces a roadmap to support economic, social, and environmental outcomes – a plan that aligns with the country’s Paris commitments.

FINANCE & MARKETS SESSIONRerouting New Zealand’s financial system to support our Paris commitments

The finance sector has a critical role in unlocking the potential of clean growth. Following in the footsteps of the European Union, Canada, China and the United Kingdom, the Aotearoa Circle’s Sustainable Finance Forum is currently designing a roadmap to help New Zealand’s financial system move to one that supports economic, social, and environmental outcomes. A system that aligns with our Paris commitments, reducing emissions, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, is critical in achieving all three. In this session attendees will learn about the Chinese and Canadian experience and delve into the Forum’s draft roadmap for New Zealand, examining what success looks like, key transition steps, and opportunities for business.
