CMI’s 2024 Carbon Conversation Series


CMI will again present its popular Carbon Conversations webinar series throughout 2024.

Recordings of previous 2024 Carbon Conversations can be viewed below.


  • Our 2024 Carbon Conversations series commenced on Friday February 23, with insights from the Clean Energy Regulator and ASX on the Australian Carbon Exchange, as well as from Technology Solutions provider Trovio on its new Unit & Certificate Register. We dove in to the developments of these systems and the implications for market trading and investment. Watch the recording of this webinar below.

    With opening remarks from:

    • John Connor, CEO, CMI
    • David Parker, Chair, CER
    • Jane Wardlaw, General Manager, CER

    • Jon Deane, Managing Director & CEO, Trovio
    • Kurt Winter, Director, Corporate Transition, CMI


  • On Friday 22nd March CMI held a Carbon Conversation to publicly launch our Example Contract Clauses. The Clauses were developed following the identification of significant variability, inconsistency and complexity in third-party contract agreements used by financial institutions interacting with the carbon market.

    With speakers:

    • Janet Hallows, Director, Climate Programs & Nature-Based Climate Solutions
    • Elisa de Wit, Partner, Norton Rose Fulbright
    • Elle McIntosh, Senior Associate, Norton Rose Fulbright

  • Following the success of our inaugural NAIDOC Week Carbon Conversation, CMI proudly presented our second NAIDOC Week Carbon Conversation on Thursday July 11th, centered around the 2024 theme of “Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud.” In this session we explored how Indigenous groups are re-engaging with traditional fire to promote healthy Country, while also looking more broadly at what constitutes “right way” engagement, and how we can best support Indigenous communities to move from being stakeholders, to shareholders.

    With speakers:

    • Simone Kenmore, Executive Manager, Indigenous Business Banking, Commonwealth Bank of Australia
    • Suzanne Thompson, Managing Director, Yumbangku Aboriginal Cultural Heritage & Tourism Development Aboriginal Corporation | Director, Indigenous Carbon Industry Network | First Nations Chair, Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee
    • Shilo Villaflor, Community Engagement Specialist
