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 Green Investment Group Green Energy Conference 2021

Raise the ambition | 5-6 October

The Macquarie Green Investment Group Green Energy Conference (GEC) is an annual event bringing together global climate leaders from across government, industry and finance to discuss the green transition.

This year we explore ways to turn climate ambition into climate action; the role of technology and carbon markets in achieving net zero; and how to accelerate climate finance in emerging markets.

We’re driving the transition to net zero through practical climate solutions.

Watch to see what we have done in the last four months.

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. 

Macquarie Asset Management, the world’s largest infrastructure manager, has previously announced a plan to manage its portfolio in line with global net zero emissions by 2040.
