On Tuesday July 14, L’Oréal Australia was proud to host an expert panel to discuss and highlight the critical need for action around climate change. Global warming, a loss of biodiversity, water scarcity and a depletion in air quality are just some of the effects that are already being felt around the globe.
The Respecting our Planetary Boundaries expert panel was hosted by writer, broadcaster and War on Waste presenter Craig Reucassel and brought together leading experts from government, business and advocacy to discuss some of the greatest threats currently facing our natural environment. “It would be great to see more businesses trying to assess and reduce their footprint. We are approaching a tipping point and need action from all parts of society,” said Reucassel.
The panel included the former Foreign Minister and Chancellor of ANU, Honourable Julie Bishop; science communicator and presenter, Laura Wells; founders, SIPP INSTANT, Dylan Garft and Luke Zocchi; and managing director, Natixis Investment Managers, Louise Watson, who explored topics such as what the private and public sectors are doing to create positive change and new approaches for our economy, such as impact investment funds to generate environmental and societal returns.
The live-streamed event provided over 2,500 viewers, for an average watch time of 22 minutes, with the opportunity to learn how government and businesses are embracing innovative ideas to shape a more sustainable future and to be inspired by new approaches to sustainable development both in Australia and abroad.
