About

The Climate Innovation Forum has been a flagship event of London Climate Action Week since it was founded in 2019. Run by Climate Action – the organisation behind the Innovation Zone at COP – the high-level event will bring together leaders from policy, business and finance to accelerate the speed and scale of our collective efforts in driving climate action.

Officially supported by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero and the City of London Corporation (as well as a plethora of other organisations), the Climate Innovation Forum’s mission is to help bridge the vast implementation, innovation and finance gaps to achieve a resilient and net-zero-emissions world by 2050. Taking place midway between COPs, the Forum will highlight the critical role of the real economy in delivering the transition and harness the power of London as a leading global climate hub.

Through its plenary conference programme, roundtables and networking opportunities, the Forum will:

  • Share best practice and pathways for successful implementation
  • Showcase and foster innovative cleantech solutions and approaches
  • Champion brave action, bold leadership and radical collaborations
  • Connect decision-makers from across sectors and regions to break down silos
  • Harness the power of UK expertise and finance as a driver for global climate action.

The Organisers

Climate Action is an independent organisation committed to facilitating collaboration to accelerate the transition to a net zero, just and sustainable world.  Established in 2007 and headquartered in London, we run a series of industry-leading media and event platforms to help forge public-private partnerships, bringing together CEOs, CSOs, investors, policy makers and city leaders to scale impact and deliver real change on the ground. Our impact-driven events include the Sustainable Innovation Forum – which has been the largest independent multi-stakeholder conference at COP since 2010, the Sustainable Investment Forums in Paris and New York, and the Climate Innovation Forum in London. For the last three years we have run the Climate Action Innovation Zone at COP as an independent platform for cross-sector collaboration, bringing together thousands of leaders and practitioners from business, finance, cities, regions and countries to drive climate action at speed and scale.
