Living in the Clean Economy

Lighter Footprints is excited to present Prof Tom Kompas and Prof Peter Newman on the benefits of a low carbon economy, and the case for a faster transition.

Living in the Clean Economy

Tom Kompas is an expert in Environmental Economics and is the lead author of a high level business case on a faster transition to a clean economy for Victoria and Queensland. His work details avoiding the massive costs of inaction (conservatively $584 billion by 2030), and three to one benefits for a faster transition to a clean economy. Peter Newman AO is an IPCC Lead Author and a much lauded sustainability expert. He will bring global perspectives and a vision of what living the clean economy could bring to communities.
