Supporting climate solutions

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

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.

Enabling the energy transition of customers, clients and our portfolio companies

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 infrastructure4 and are working with portfolio companies to substantially reduce the carbon intensity of their activities.

Investing in adaptation and resilience

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.

Aligning our activities with our net zero ambitions

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 across Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2025 and aligning our financing activities with the global goal of net zero emissions by 2050.

Insights into the global energy transition 

Our diverse team of experts share their latest thinking on current and emerging energy transition topics.

  1. On our balance sheet or under Macquarie management. Excludes lending and private credit funds. GW of green energy assets reflect 100% generating capacity of each asset, not the proportion owned/managed by Macquarie.
  2. On our balance sheet or under Macquarie management. In the six years to 31 March 2023.
  3. Excludes private credit funds. Assets under management (AUM) is calculated as the proportional ownership interest in the underlying assets of funds and mandated assets that Macquarie actively manages or advises for the purpose of wealth creation, adjusted to exclude cross-holdings in funds and to reflect Macquarie’s proportional ownership interest of the fund manager. Private Markets AUM includes equity to deploy.
  4. Macquarie Capital is the #1 renewables infrastructure financial adviser globally and #1 infrastructure financial adviser globally based on information by inspiratia for the 2022 calendar year by deal value. There can be no assurance that other providers would reach the same conclusions.
  5. The ranking was awarded to Macquarie Asset Management in July 2022 and is the opinion of IPE Real Assets. The ranking is based on Assets Under Management (AUM) at 31 Dec 2021. There can be no assurance that other providers or surveys would reach the same conclusions.
  6. The equivalent of 100% of our FY2023 electricity consumption was sourced from renewable sources through a combination of purchased green energy from landlords or utilities (46.5%) and energy attribute certificates (53.5%) respectively which will be retired by 30 June 2023. Based on RE100 boundary criteria, the equivalent of our FY2023 electricity consumption sourced from renewable sources is 99.6% due to insufficient renewable energy certificates in the South Korean market to meet our requirements. However, renewable energy certificates were purchased from other international markets to account for the 100% renewable electricity.

Green energy is the generation of electricity or heat from renewable or low-carbon sources - and includes wind, solar, biogas and green hydrogen.
