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.

Delivering the low-carbon transition in emerging markets and developing economies

Supporting decarbonisation in emerging markets and developing economies is central to global climate change mitigation efforts. Yet, at a time when global action to deliver a rapid and just transition in these countries should be accelerating, sustainable investment flows have been stalling. In this piece, we share our view on some of the key priorities, opportunities, and solutions in closing the gap in climate finance mobilisation.

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

  • Developing and investing in green energy

Driving decarbonisation solutions

In this episode, our host Lisa Jamieson from Macquarie’s Corporate Affairs team, is joined by Kate Vidgen, Head of Industrial Transition and Clean Fuels at Macquarie’s Green Investment Group, and Elizabeth O’Leary, Head of Agriculture and Natural Assets at Macquarie Asset Management. Together they discuss the factors accelerating the need for climate change mitigation and how their teams are working on some very different ways of helping businesses keep their commitments to decarbonisation. Considering topics ranging from farming to shipping, they highlight how no one solution fits all – and as a result, decarbonisation pathways can be achieved through a variety of new and innovative methods.
