Why attend?

We are all in this together, but there is a knowledge gap between policy, the innovation required to decarbonise, the finance at every stage, and the corporate and public sector leaders who need to deploy innovative solutions to hit their net zero targets.

Innovation Zero exists because investors need to find the next unicorn and surface innovators who will put a dent in the climate crisis. Corporate sustainability executives need to bolster committed boardroom support. Innovators need capital. Corporate and public sector supply chain leaders need to decarbonise whole supplier networks. Procurement need competitively costed low carbon suppliers.

Innovation Zero is free-to-attend and access-all-areas for professionals in this space.

    Director, Centre for Sustainable Finance, CISL
  • "It’s a great opportunity to meet with other likeminded investors, to meet entrepreneurs who are with their start-up companies looking for funding, but also to engage in the wider ecosystem such as corporates, regulators, and supply chain firms all of whom are on this decarbonisation journey across the myriad of different sectors that it impacts."
    Beverley Gower-Jones OBE
    CEO, Clean Growth Fund
  • "Innovation Zero can really allow people to understand that the solutions are out there. The commercial solutions and financing solutions that are associated and need to be built alongside those. So if there’s one thing that people should take away, it’s that the transition is going to happen, and both the financial and corporate world will be able to deliver it."
    Adrian Rimmer
    Director of Sustainable Finance, LSEG
  • "Events like Innovation Zero are an opportunity for us to really get out and understand what people working on, how we’re seeing the responses to the climate emergency push forward. There’s a lot of ambition, it’s really useful to get together with people and compare notes."
