Welcome to IBECC 2023

Sustainability is fast becoming one of the most important issues facing investors and businesses today, and assessing the risks and opportunities of a changing climate is now an imperative. 

 

Join us in Cairns, Queensland, Australia for the inaugural International Business, Environment & Climate Conference (IBECC) from 24 - 26 May 2023 at the Cairns Convention Centre. Attending IBECC, you will learn from global leaders and presenters as they provide an in-depth analysis into the future of ESG reporting, aligning business outcomes with net-zero commitments, how to drive sustainable business growth, and more! 

In addition to a compelling line-up of presenters, this unique three-day conference will provide an opportunity to experience first hand the impacts Climate Change is having on the World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef and what innovative restoration projects are in place to protect and manage coral reefs.

Cairns is the only place in the world where two natural UNESCO World Heritage-listed sites sit side by side: the Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef. This spectacular region boasts the largest number of eco-certified operators in Australia and is the perfect host destination for IBECC.

 

The conference will be held both in-person and in virtual format, so it will remain accessible to those who are unable to attend in person.

In the spirit of reconciliation, IBECC are committed to honouring Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ unique cultural and spiritual relationships to the land, water and seas and their rich contribution to society.

 

The lands on which we hold our Cairns event on has significant cultural heritage value to the Yirrganydji and Gimuy Walubara Yidinji people. It is important that these values are acknowledged, and that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural heritage is recognised and preserved.

 

We acknowledge those of the past, the ancestors whose strength has nurtured this land and its people, and First Nations people of the present for their leadership and ongoing effort to protect and promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their cultures. 

 

IBECC recognises it is our collective efforts, and responsibility as individuals and communities to ensure equality and recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across all aspects of society and everyday life.
