Addressing climate change

We are taking a leading role in harnessing private capital to support the global imperative to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

As an organisation, our purpose is empowering people to innovate and invest for a better future. So on climate change, we’re supporting governments, clients and communities to realise their decarbonisation ambitions, whether that’s alignment with the Paris Agreement, carbon neutrality, net zero or another measure.

Our global capabilities in managing, developing, advising, financing and trading come together in support of these goals.

Climate Adaptation: Accelerating investment into resilient infrastructure

On the 25th and 26th of January, we took part in the online international Climate Adaptation Summit. The summit promoted actions to make our world more resilient to the effects of climate change.

Macquarie Group co-hosted the Infrastructure session with the Government of the Netherlands, covering the acceleration of adaptation measures to improve the climate resilience of infrastructure.

Click to view the full infrastructure session with a mixture of panel discussions, fireside chats and specially-commissioned films, featuring speakers from the private and public sectors across the world.

I’m passionate about the role that the private sector can play in making our existing infrastructure more resilient and ensuring that the new infrastructure that we build has climate resilience designed in, right from the start.”
