First held alongside COP16 in Cancún, Mexico, the Sustainable Innovation Forum has been uniting the public and private sector to accelerate climate action for the last decade. The Forum is now recognised as the premium business-focused event during the UNFCCC’s annual Climate Change Conference.
As we move ever closer to the 1.5C limit, the Forum presents a critical opportunity to drive forward the Paris Agreement framework. Almost 600 delegates gathered to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon, green economy during COP25 at the Novotel Madrid Campo de las Naciones, Madrid, Spain.
Climate leader insights, keynotes, panel discussions, fireside chats, live polling, Q&A audience debates, start-up pitches, solution sessions, innovation spotlights and much more content opportunities ensured our delegates received unique insights to the projects of governments and the private sector to meet national climate change commitments.
Accelerating Solutions for Climate Action
Delegates join global leaders for the largest business-focused climate forum alongside the COP25 negotiations in Madrid.
“The Sustainable Innovation Forum brings together leading companies, high-level ministers, mayors from cities all over the world and young professionals to discuss the obstacles and opportunities of a sustainable development. It’s all about cooperation when tackling climate change. We always pick up new ideas and expand our network with the SIF.”
“To get on the right path to a better, safer future, we need to work together on common and systemic solutions, and to address the drivers of environmental degradation. The Sustainable Innovation Forum provides a valuable opportunity to share ideas and learn what others are doing.”
“The Sustainable Innovation Forum is an invaluable event for stakeholders from different areas (such as politics, NGOs, entrepreneurs and global companies) to discuss solutions, share success cases and establish new contacts. The event’s down-to-earth ambiance opens up for direct discussions and sharing of opinions between stakeholders on different levels and functions.”

It is almost five years since the Paris Agreement was established and we are still not on track to stave off the climate crisis. Time is running out, as highlighted by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s recent report; we only have 12 years in which to act to keep the rise in temperature below 1.5C. If you want to be a part of the climate solution, if you have an ambitious project, new technology or want to influence key UN and government policy to galvanise the green economy, join us next year in Glasgow, UK for the Sustainable Innovation Forum 2020.
