The Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance (the Lab) is pleased to announce a partnership with the 10th Sustainable Innovation Forum 2019 convened alongside the UNFCCC’s COP 25.

The Forum has a reputation as one of the largest business focused event at COP, facilitating direct engagement between private and public sector leaders. As an official affiliate event of COP 25, this years’ Forum will convene 600 high level delegates, including environment and energy ministers, city leaders, heads of UN agencies, CEO’s and heads of sustainability from global businesses and CEO’s and founders of clean tech start-ups.

The Forum’s agenda will address the following topics: Sustainable Mobility, Energy Transition, the Circular Economy, Natural Capital, Climate Finance, Sustainable Cities, Heavy Transport, Emerging Climate-Tech, Climate-Smart Agriculture and the Oceans Economy.

It will be located in the Green Zone, so is accessible to those who do not hold an official observer or party badge for COP.

The Lab’s secretariat, Climate Policy Initiative, will be facilitating speakers and a delegation from the Lab’s network of members, proponents, and stakeholders.
