Event Overview

Overcoming a global health emergency and preventing the global climate emergency will require an unprecedented level of cross-sector, cross-industry and cross-border collaboration.

Over the last 11 years, Climate Action has been uniting the public, private and NGO sectors alongside the UN climate change summits by convening the largest multi-stakeholder forum at COP: The Sustainable Innovation Forum.

Each year, the Forum plays a key role in facilitating the connections that forge the cross sectors partnerships required to address the global climate emergency and accelerate the transition to a net-zero economy.

The Sustainable Innovation Forum 2021 agenda will be our most ambitious to date. Both days will include plenary mornings consisting of high-level discussions and debates on climate challenges, actions and net-zero strategies, followed by four unique Industry Tracks in the afternoon.

Established in 2007, our digital and live events platforms build tangible partnerships between business, government, UN agencies and the NGO community to accelerate the global transition to net zero.

Climate Action work in formal partnerships with a number of UN Agencies including: UNEP Finance Initiative, The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations and The World Bank Group to create high impact physical and digital events that deliver value for all stakeholders.

As Part of

Given the delay to UNFCC’s COP negotiations to 2021 and in response to the global health crisis, it’s never been more important for organisations to utilise strong and effective digital platforms.

The Sustainable Innovation Forum 2020 forms part of our wider Roadmap to COP26 initiative launched in April to help organisations maintain momentum on climate action and build pressure towards COP26 – more than 20,000 have been engaged to date.
