The Climate Innovation Forum returns this summer as a headline event of London Climate Action Week. Organised by Climate Action as part of our Roadmap to COP26, the event is designed to connect 5,000 policy makers, investors, businesses and sustainability leaders from across the UK to boost business innovation, technological solutions and capital investment in order to close the gap between ambition and action.
With over 150 speakers and more than 50 partners, the Forum will include high-level plenary sessions and deep-dive industry tracks, a digital exhibition, virtual networking and climate boardrooms (roundtables). The 3-day agenda will focus on the UK’s Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution – looking at how we can build back better, support green jobs, and accelerate our path to net zero – whilst harnessing the power of London for global climate action.
Founded in 2007, Climate Action’s mission is to accelerate the transition to a global green economy in order to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement and align with the SDGs. We do this through a series of high impact forums, virtual events and digital media platforms that facilitate tangible dialogue and partnerships between public and private sector partners, policy makers and investors.
Now in its third year, London Climate Action Week (LCAW) is an annual event encouraging London’s unique and world-leading array of climate organisations, professionals and sectoral actors to come together to help accelerate the city’s transformation towards a net zero, equitable and resilient future. LCAW aims to harness the power of London to influence and shape global climate action. 26 June – 4 July 2021.
The Climate Innovation Forum 2021 forms part of Climate Action’s Roadmap to COP26, designed to help organisations engage with stakeholders and targeted audience groups and maintain momentum on climate action in the lead up to COP26 in Glasgow. The Roadmap includes numerous hybrid and virtual events focused on key industry pathways including hydrogen, industry, transport, energy and cities.
“The message that comes out of this Forum will be very telling and the world will be listening. Especially in a place like London where it’s very dynamic, extremely bold, interactive and courageous.”
