Cleantech in the spotlight: edie launches Innovation Week of online content and events

The path to net-zero by 2050 requires low-carbon investments to rise from $900bn in 2020 to $5trn annually by 2030. Radical sums of money need to be diverted into emerging markets and scalable, “corporate ready” innovations that can help the private sector meet timebound, climate targets.

Our Innovation Week 2024 campaign will feature a range of new and exclusive online content including a webinar, downloadable report, written analysis, contributed op-eds and a special edition of the long-standing Sustainability Uncovered podcast.

Here are some of the key things you can expect this week.

Free-to-attend webinar on scaling climate innovation

We’re hosting an hour-long webinar on Thursday (20 June) from 2pm BST, convening three guest experts to share heir learnings on scaling low-carbon technologies.

The webinar will be based around three expert presentations which provide examples of best practice and key takeaways for other businesses to explore and unlock innovation. The session will culminate with a live audience Q&A, allowing you to have your green questions answered by our experts.

We’re delighted to have confirmed guest presenters from EIT Climate-KIC, Sustainable Ventures and The Co-op Foundation.

The report will also provide a stock take of progress in key innovation areas so far, identifying the gaps and opportunities on the horizon.
