The opportunities, challenges, strategies and impact of the Clean Energy Corporation to date.
The implications of sustainable finance on the supply and use of capital.
This event was co-presented by Melbourne Business School and the Centre for Sustainability and Business.
From this event
It was a pleasure to welcome our guests to the MBS Breakfast Series. We were joined by Ian Learmonth, Chief Executive Officer, Clean Energy Finance Corporation in conversation with Ian Harper, the Dean of Melbourne Business School.
As Caron Beaton-Wells mentioned in her closing remarks, one of the key highlights was the stimulating conversation on topics such as sustainable finance, a promising future and momentum behind investment which was both exciting and heartening.
Everyone was inspired by the genuine dialogue between Ian Learmonth and Ian Harper, which made for a great discussion and Q&A. Guests appreciated the opportunity to talk with likeminded people and bounce ideas of those in similar and different sectors.
