Event description



Get direct access to Australia’s leading experts – listen, ask your questions and engage

The world is about to change – for investors, financiers, developers, corporates and their professional advisers. Not to mention governments at all levels and all the people who design and deliver buildings and cities. 

ESG mandates are on the move.

You’ll have heard that powerful legal and regulatory obligations are about to hit your C-suite. Taskforce on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure, the nature positive rules, scope 3 emissions disclosures, just to start.

But are your advisers and responsible entities up to speed? Do you know the scope of impact or what the timelines are?

And what do you know about that much more uncertain driver - expectations?

Think social media backlash and uncomfortable news clips. That offshore wind farm won’t harm whales, but who’s to stop weaponising whales, Trump-style?.

The Fifth Estate is proud to again bring you Australia’s most trusted experts to answer your questions and engage with your concerns, in an intimate online setting. With takeaways.

TFE Members and government professionals enjoy generous ticket discounts.
