Accelerating Solutions for Climate Action

9-10 December 2019

The Sustainable Innovation Forum (SIF) has been uniting the public and private sector to accelerate climate action for 10 years.

Where policy-makers and climate technology innovators meet at COP 25.

First held alongside COP 16 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 COP.

As we move ever closer to the 1.5C limit, the Forum presents a critical opportunity to drive forward the Paris Agreement framework by bringing together 600 delegates responsible for accelerating the transition to a zero-carbon, green economy.

Join the Climate Action Journey

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, then this is your opportunity.
