Climate Innovation Forum will bring together 700 climate leaders, pioneers and practitioners



Returning for the fourth year, the Climate Innovation Forum will bring together 700 climate leaders, pioneers and practitioners at the QEII Centre in Westminster, London, as a critical touchpoint between COP26 and COP27.

The high-level Forum will look at core pathways to net zero and the delivery of the Glasgow Breakthroughs, shining a spotlight on the urgency of innovation. The action-orientated event will explore what’s actually working to close the gap between ambition and action – showcasing the creation and adoption of innovative technologies, processes and business models to reach net zero at the scale and pace needed.

With a mixture of keynote addresses, panel discussions, live Q&A sessions, innovation spotlights, peer-to-peer industry roundtables and an Innovation Pavilion along with multiple networking opportunities, the one-day Forum is a must-attend event for sustainability professionals leading their organisation’s net zero transition.
