What is Innovation Zero?

Innovation Zero exists to accelerate meaningful action towards a low carbon economy and society​, and our mission is to build and connect a global network of innovators, funders, businesses and policymakers.

Each year, Innovation Zero will provide a meeting place for partnerships, deal-making, collaborations, announcements and trade, for those who develop, produce, deploy and fund low carbon solutions.

The inaugural Innovation Zero Congress at Olympia London in 2023 convened 6,866 passionate, forward-looking experts who exchanged critical knowledge, debate and discussions around the implementation and scaling  of the innovations needed to meet the Paris goals.

What in store for 2024?

The entire team believe in the power of Innovation Zero to connect leaders across sectors to form new alliances and share valuable knowledge in the fight against climate change. Everyone worked very hard to deliver a high quality and valuable experience for the delegates, exhibitors, speakers and sponsors.

In 2024, there will be more availability and access for the seminar theatres and an increased focus on international collaboration and opportunities. As we currently plan the 2024 edition, we will grow both the event footfall to  10,000+ attendees, and expand the content, opportunities and international scope.

    Sean Sargent

  • "The BPF was delighted to be part of Innovation Zero this year. The race to net zero is the defining challenge of our time, and the built environment a critical actor. Huge congratulation to the organisers from bringing together such a diverse range of participants and conversations. I look forward to being part of an even bigger and better event in 2024!"
    Melanie Leech CBE
    CEO, British Property Federation (BPF)
  • "Innovation Zero brought together a very wide and diverse group of innovators across multiple sectors with UK Government presence, highlighting that we need to take action now. It was truly refreshing, to see so many SMEs represented rather than the large corporates who usually steel the limelight at such events. Furthermore, it was professionally organized, with great speakers and moderators, together with a wealth of knowledge sharing across the two days."
    Steve Milward
    SVP Operations & Engineering, 8 Rivers
  • "Innovation Zero brings together innovators, businesses, investors and decision-makers from different countries to discuss important steps on accelerating the green transition. Truly inspiring and encouraging to meet so many different actors contributing with different solutions and to learn from other local leaders."
    Katrin Stjernfeldt-Jammeh
    Mayor, City of Malmö
  • "As a start up working to help solve complex global challenges, events like this are invaluable to speak to people from a range of backgrounds. From standards bodies and large corporates, to family owned importers and academia. We will definitely be returning!"

    Marketing and Communications Lead, iov42
