Delivering this transformation requires global partnerships of governments and the private sector, and Mission Innovation is one of the international community’s most important vehicles for driving this forward. The UK is delighted to be part of Mission Innovation and to be collaborating with partners around the world in pursuit of our common goal: accelerating the clean energy revolution. Mission Innovation is also about coming together to celebrate our successes. I am proud to say that since 1990 the UK has reduced emissions by over forty per cent while growing our economy by over seventy per cent, outperforming the rest of the G7. This shows that a low carbon transition goes hand in hand with economic success, proof that clean growth is not only possible, but the best game in town. This success is underpinned by innovation and I am delighted that at the 3rd Mission Innovation Ministerial in Malmö, Sweden we can shine a light on some of the most significant breakthroughs emerging from other MI members’ investments. This publication highlights some of these success stories from across the globe: the innovative HYBRIT project from Sweden, which is using hydrogen to reduce CO2 emissions from ironmaking to zero, and India’s unique Micro Solar Dome device are just two of the great examples that should inspire us all. But there is more work for us to do. We must harness the ingenuity and determination of scientists and engineers in universities and industry across the globe, to continue to drive the phenomenal progress made to date, and to succeed in delivering a clean growth revolution. Rt Hon Claire Perry MP Minister of State for Energy and Clean Growth, UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy This is an extraordinary moment for international climate collaboration. The global community has come together to tackle the challenge of man-made climate change and to safeguard our planet for future generations. The launch of Mission Innovation at the signing of the Paris Climate Agreement was a critical moment in building this global movement. It acknowledged that to decarbonise successfully we need to unlock a huge wave of innovation to fundamentally transform the way we generate and consume energy. FOREWORD
