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.
