Hear about Economy-wide Carbon Abatement Business Opportunities and the key role for Agriculture – followed by Panel discussion*.

Paul Hawken – eminent international speaker, author, entrepreneur and editor of New York Times bestseller “Project Drawdown: The most comprehensive plan ever to reverse global warming”, has founded successful ecologically-conscious businesses and consulted with heads of state, CEOs on economic development, industrial ecology and environmental policy.

Drawdown is based on meticulous research that maps, measures, models and describes the 100 most substantive solutions to global warming. For each solution, the book describes its history, the carbon impact it provides, the relevant cost and savings, the path to adoption, and how it works.

All solutions modelled are already in place, well understood, analysed based on peer-reviewed science, and are expanding around the world.

Included are many projects of specific relevance to the Australian business and investment community.
