Building Queensland's
Climate Tech Industry

Growing Climate Tech in Queensland

The Queensland Government and Climate Salad have created a three-year strategic partnership to foster innovation in climate tech and make Queensland an absolute powerhouse for climate tech solutions and jobs.

What is this partnership?

Rich with natural capital and resources, Queensland is geographically diverse but vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Queensland Government, through the Office of the Queensland Chief Entrepreneur, Advance Queensland and Trade and Investment Queensland, is committed to playing its part in the global effort to address climate change with set targets to reach net zero emissions, the Queensland Jobs and Energy Plan, commitment for a climate positive Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games and more. With these challenges come opportunities for the Queensland climate tech community domestically and internationally.

This partnership will include a series of initiatives such as local events in Brisbane and the regions, an International Trade Mission to the Verge ClimateTech Event in San Francisco, a Women in Climate Tech Fellowship and the ability to track Queensland’s growth through an annual Queensland Climate Tech Report.

We’re proud to support climate tech founders and the climate tech community in Queensland.
