For two decades we have worked in close partnerships with stakeholders in the public and private sectors to support the energy transition and advance solutions to climate challenges.
Macquarie is committed to playing a leading role in the global transition to net zero emissions by 2050, through creating practical climate solutions and supporting our clients and portfolio companies on their decarbonisation journeys.
The Macquarie Green Investment Group Green Energy Conference (GEC) brings together senior leaders in industry, finance and policy to discuss the challenges, opportunities and progress in the global transition to net zero.
This is Macquarie’s first combined Group Net Zero and Climate Risk Report. It sets out progress on our climate strategy implementation and engagement, detailing how our approach has evolved, grown, and expanded in its scope and reach.
With extensive expertise and experience in scaling energy transition solutions, we are using our deep capabilities in energy, infrastructure, technology and commodities to support climate action in five key areas.
Working alongside clients and investors, we are developing, constructing, financing and managing ~107 GW of green energy projects across five continents. This includes 87GW of green energy assets in development.2
Here are some of the ways in which we are working with partners around the world to support decarbonisation efforts and invest in the energy transition.
We are supporting clients to develop new approaches to accelerate their energy transition. This includes providing critical risk and capital solutions to commodity and energy suppliers, helping customers with compliance and voluntary carbon markets, supporting the scaling-up of clean fuels and carbon capture and storage, and the launch of a specialised electric vehicle buying service in Australia. We are also a leading global financial advisor in renewables transactions1, and are working with portfolio companies to substantially reduce the carbon intensity of their activities.
In Macquarie Asset Management’s new podcast series, we hear from leaders at infrastructure portfolio companies and real estate properties. They share unique insights into their businesses' decarbonisation challenges and the practical climate solutions they are implementing to achieve net zero.
As the world’s largest infrastructure manager and a leading developer of new greenfield infrastructure, we are helping prepare communities for a changing world by designing climate resilience into new construction. At the same time, we are investing in the adaptation of the infrastructure we manage.
We are committed to aligning our business operations and financing activities with the objective of reaching net zero 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 to net zero by 2050.
We are actively engaged in global climate initiatives and work with partners in the private and public sector to advance climate solutions.
Our diverse team of experts share their latest thinking on current and emerging energy transition topics.
