The European Union – Australian Climate Business Network provides a platform for industry sectors with an interest in sustainability to harness international co-operation and build momentum and scale in the transition to a net zero economy.
With free trade negotiations between Australia (AUS) and the European Union (EU) generating increased interest in trade and investment with Europe, the Network provides a forum for the Australian business community to keep up to date about EU climate and trade and sustainable development policies and initiatives.
Working with Australian and European industry associations across a wide range of sectors including renewable energy, finance, infrastructure, agriculture and food production and waste management, the Network engages with EU and Australian policymakers, diplomatic and trade representatives of Member State diplomatic missions and chambers of commerce, the Delegation of the European Union to Australia and European companies operating in Australia.
The Network is financially supported by the European Commission under its Partnership Instrument “Strategic Program for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement’.
Climate-KIC Australia, with its linkages to the EU through its sister organisation EIT Climate-KIC, is the delivery partner for the Network. Climate-KIC is a knowledge and innovation community (KIC) which works with public and private partners to catalyse system level climate action.
