Carbon Conversations

An interactive live webinar series developed to address key industry, policy, regulatory and community issues. Held on Fridays, at 12pm AEST, via Zoom, keep an eye on the developing schedule below.

Carbon Conversations provides a new way to connect, communicate and collaborate throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring we can lead and inform our community on the benefits of transitioning to a net-zero emissions economy.

The series will involve CMI members and other key industry leaders. Please contact us with your speaker and topic suggestions.

Occasionally these events will be free, registration is essential. In most cases, Carbon Conversations will be accessible exclusively to CMI Corporate and Associate Members, and housed on our CMI Members Portal. Professional Network Members  will also have access (available to individuals and fully tax deductible).

Get your lunch ready, and questions, and join us for an informal but informative weekly Friday discussion.
