SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES — Net Zero Tech speaker series

Sponsorship Prospectus


Sponsor our Towards Net Zero speaker series

ATSE launched its Net Zero Emissions Position Statement in September 2021.

It calls for Australia to take urgent action to achieve net zero emissions* by 2050 at the latest, and for Australia to set a more ambitious interim emissions target for 2030. The science of climate change is unequivocal, and we are already experiencing its impacts on the environment, industry, and everyday life. To avoid the worsening consequences of climate change, the world must take urgent action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible. Having considered the scientific evidence, the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE) concludes that Australia should:

  • Commit to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 at the latest, and set a more ambitious interim emissions target for 2030

  • Prioritise the immediate deployment of existing mature, low-carbon technologies which can make deep cuts to high-emitting sectors before 2030

  • Develop a national net zero emissions policy and implementation framework

*Net Zero Emissions refers to the accounting balance between a country’s greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere and any ‘negative emissions’ – through natural or technological solutions – that remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.

Purpose of the speaker series

Our series speakers will explore key technologies that can be used here in Australia to make deep cuts to our emissions this decade, setting a course for achieving net zero emissions as soon as possible and how we’ll ultimately get to net zero.


The primary audience is ATSE Fellows & policymakers with the aim to expedite discussion on how technologies can help Australia get to net zero emissions.

The secondary audience is STEM professionals within the climate change and renewable energy sectors, individuals working alongside or in parallel with the Academy toward net zero. It also includes those working on energy or net zero issues, looking to understand more about available technologies to assist Australia on the road to net zero emissions.

The hidden audience will be members of the public that are passionate about climate change and wanting to know more about net zero initiatives.

Online events will be open and free to attend, in-person events will incur a fee and the Parliamentary Friends event will be by invitation only.
