What is the Industry Report?

A flagship release of unique data on the Aussie climate tech ecosystem, which is free to access. We collect this data to support founders, investors, ecosystem supporters and mentors and to help benchmark and grow the industry.

In 2022, we asked 101 questions in our Founders Survey, and 171 companies across Australia and New Zealand participated.

In 2023 we hope to build on this foundational data and bring you the most comprehensive insights into Australian climate tech ever collected.

The Triple Win Opportunity

Our 2022 report has found a strong, growing and thriving climate tech industry in ANZ. Over $1.4 billion in capital has been raised to date and over 4000 jobs have been created.

There are three big wins for climate tech:
Win 1: We will contribute to getting the planet back to sustainability
Win 2: We will elevate our research and innovation sectors
Win 3: We will create a strong economy and potentially a million new jobs for the future
