Climate Innovation Forum 2024

The Climate Innovation Forum returns for the sixth year as a flagship event of London Climate Action Week. Taking place on Thursday 27 June, the event will bring together over 1,000 business leaders, policy makers, investors and civil society representatives to accelerate the speed and scale of our collective efforts in driving climate action.

Organised by Climate Action in collaboration with DESNZ and the City of London Corporation, the Forum will focus on translating promises into tangible actions midway between COPs, harnessing the power of London as a leading global climate hub.

The high-level event will champion the role of the real economy in delivering the transition, serving as a platform for sharing the brave leadership, innovative solutions and radical collaborations needed to bridge the yawning gaps in implementation, investment and scaling-up of innovation.
