The question is no longer whether to decarbonise, but rather how to decarbonise; how to accelerate the transition to net zero. Many Australian businesses have committed to net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and/or interim targets. The rationale for decarbonisation might vary between organisations but the concepts, approaches and technologies are consistent.

This one-day program covers the fundamentals of energy productivity and decarbonisation technology. It maps the business case and explores practical approaches to implementation.

Who should attend?

The course is primarily designed for those new to the world of net zero, decarbonisation and energy productivity.

  • junior engineering and environmental science graduates working with manufacturing, equipment supply and energy advisory/consulting firms
  • government officials who work with energy and decarbonisation seeking to get a deeper understanding of how business is working with decarbonisation
  • accountants, marketing, communications and other professionals wishing to understand the challenges, opportunities and solutions of decarbonisation
