Businesses, investors, cities and regions across Australia and the world have stepped up with increasingly ambitious targets and plans to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 or sooner.

Still these commitments fall short and at least $3 trillion of investment annually will be needed if we are to get to net zero in time. Decarbonisation technologies will need to scale further and faster than any other technologies have before.

Reducing emissions alone however will not be enough. According to the World Economic Forum nearly half of the world's GDP - $44 trillion - is moderately or highly dependent on nature.

Climate change and biodiversity loss are deeply interconnected challenges and achieving net zero will only be possible with an integrated ‘net zero, nature positive’ approach.

To address this, the 2nd Impact X Summit Sydney will present an expanded three-day agenda of dialogue, workshops, and events, designed to accelerate action for a net zero, climate positive future. The agenda is developed with input from national expert advisory groups and five industry streams will produce an outcome statement of ideas, recommendations, and commitments.

The world’s most promising and exciting innovations will be centre stage, to connect with the investors, buyers, and partners needed to scale.

Join leaders from business, government, finance, and NGOs in Sydney this November and drive bold, inclusive action for future generations and our planet!
