Innovation for net-zero: Opportunities and solutions for business

This webinar will explore how businesses are utilising innovation to drive decarbonisation.

Technological innovation is arguably the most critical enabler of the global transition to a net-zero carbon economy. The good news is that the vast majority of the tech required to decarbonise already exists, to varying levels of maturity. But these technologies must be deployed at scale and at pace over the coming months and years if we are to solve the climate crisis.

So, which technologies are most viable and will have the biggest decarbonisation impact if deployed by businesses today? What policies, frameworks and funding mechanisms will help to increase the development and uptake of green innovations, both in the UK and globally? And what emerging technologies and solutions hold the most potential to achieve a net-zero-carbon future?

Backed up by real-life case studies, this edie webinar brings together a selection of leading businesses and innovators to discuss the role of innovation on the road to net-zero. The 60-minute session webinar will showcase business examples and need-to-know information when it comes to identifying and deploying net-zero technologies.
