Innovation. Collaboration. Action.

Returning for the fourth year, the Climate Innovation Forum is a flagship event of London Climate Action Week 2022, bringing together senior public and private sector decision makers to accelerate the delivery of net zero commitments. The event – with an in-person audience of 700 and 3,000 on-demand global views – is a critical touchpoint between COP26 and COP27.

The Forum looked at core pathways to net zero and the delivery of the Glasgow Breakthroughs, shining a spotlight on the urgency of innovation.

Bringing together policy-makers, investors, climate-tech solution providers, business leaders and multilateral organisations, the action-orientated event will showcase what’s actually working to close the gap between ambition and action – exploring the creation and adoption of innovative technologies, processes and business models to reach net zero at the scale and pace needed.

Watch the Climate Innovation Forum to be inspired, to drumbeat, to connect and to do business. Be part of the action!
