Pathways to net zero emissions

Members Lunch with Anna Skarbek

9th November 2017

Australia needs a unified approach to drive action on climate change. 

In 2009, ClimateWorks Australia was established by the Myer Foundation and Monash University - an independent, research-based, non-profit organisation committed to catalysing reductions in greenhouse gas emissions in Australia through emission reduction opportunities and partnering with business and government in unblocking barriers to their implementation.

Anna is an experienced investment banker, policy adviser and qualified lawyer. She was a founding director of the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, a trustee of the Sustainable Melbourne Fund, a member of the Australian Government's Energy White Paper Reference Panel and the Grattan Institute's Energy Program Reference Panel. She is a former director of the Carbon Market Institute and of the Linking Melbourne Authority. She was a member of the Australian Government's Land Sector Carbon and Biodiversity Board and NGO Roundtable on Climate Change.

Before ClimateWorks Anna worked in London's carbon markets as Vice President of Advisory with Climate Change Capital, a senior policy adviser to the Victorian Deputy Premier, investment banker in Macquarie Bank and a solicitor with Mallesons Stephen Jaques. She also served on the board of The Big Issue and the board of Amnesty International Australia for six years in roles including National Treasurer and Victorian President.

We are very pleased to have Anna available and suggest you book early.
