- This event has passed.
In August 2019, the Western Australian Government announced aspirations of net zero emissions for Western Australia and subsequently developed the Western Australian Climate Policy in November 2020. The policy details a suite of climate change actions underway and sets out new commitments to support a vision of a low-carbon future. These include initiatives to support the net zero transition across the public sector; initiatives for low-carbon energy, mining and agriculture; and commitments to guide decarbonisation across the rest of our economy.
Whether it’s creating a more efficient way for moving and treating wastewater, harnessing water for power generation, or separating water molecules for the production of green hydrogen, water will play a key role in WA achieving its aspirations of a net carbon zero emissions state by 2050. Transitioning towards a net zero emission environment will require commitment, development and investment in new technology, leadership, and the whole economy working together. The 2021 AWA Breakfast Session will provide insight into the various strategies and actions being employed by various organisations within our industry to achieve this important goal.
The event will consist of a keynote speaker (details to be confirmed soon) and facilitated panel discussion – our confirmed panel members to date are:
Nicole Lockwood, Founder and Director, Lockwood Advisory & Deputy Chair of Infrastructure WA
Jahna Cedar OAM, Director at IPS Management Consultants
