Driving climate solutions

Climate change is one of the defining challenges of our time. ​

For almost two decades we have worked with governments and clients to drive the energy transition and advance practical solutions to climate challenges. We have built market leading capabilities in investing directly into climate mitigation and adaptation infrastructure and in supporting our clients and portfolio companies to decarbonise their activities. 

We are committed to playing a leading role in achieving global net zero emissions by 2050.

Macquarie's highlights from this year's COP26 in Glasgow

From 31 October to 12 November 2021, climate leaders will gather in Glasgow for COP26, the most consequential convention on climate change since the Paris Agreement was reached in 2015.

A delegation of senior Macquarie leaders, led by Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Shemara Wikramanayake, are at COP26 to join events. We will use this page to share details of Macquarie’s engagement at COP26, providing regular updates throughout the conference.

Our capabilities and commitments

We're driving the green transition through practical climate solutions.​

  • Developing and investing in green energy
  • Creating climate resilient infrastructure
  • Enabling the decarbonisation of clients and portfolio companies
  • Aligning our activities with net zero by 2050. 

Macquarie Group is committed to align its activities with the global goal of net zero emissions by 2050.

We will do this by reaching net zero for our own business operations by 2025 and aligning the emissions associated with our financing activities by 2050. 

Our environmental, social and governance (ESG) commitment reflects our responsibility to clients, shareholders and the communities in which we operate.

We regularly disclose climate risks, report on our progress across our businesses and support a range of global climate initiatives.
