Details

With less than 10 years to halve greenhouse gas emissions and avoid global warming of above 1.5°C, every sector of the global economy must transform at breakneck speed. Some of the critical technologies and solutions for this transformation are still in a lab, many are not even conceptualised.

Innovators, together with investors, are vital players to bring novel technologies and disruptive approaches to industry as we build a new future. Early stage investment into climate tech is growing fast, with government-backed asset managers and private equity players increasingly engaging in earlier stage deals to get exposure, and corporate players, from oil majors to Big Tech, playing important roles in scaling up technologies at speed.

This event will connect global leading entrepreneurs, investors, academics and policy-makers to explore how to accelerate the pace of innovation. Through a schedule of interactive events taking place from May to November, this element of the Net Zero Festival will showcase the innovation that will underpin the Net Zero economy and explore how to catalyse technological progress and deployment.
