The United Nations (UN) Secretary-General has labeled climate change ‘the defining issue of our time’. The world has 10 years to halve global greenhouse gas emissions and avoid global warming of above 1.5°C. Before 2050, the global economy needs to be at ‘net zero’ carbon emissions.

We need to urgently accelerate innovation and technology to meet these challenges. Climate tech spans innovation and technology across energy, resources, materials and the environment, transportation, agriculture, infrastructure, buildings and heavy industry.

The Global Climate Tech Landscape is an open-source taxonomy for climate innovation, providing a common structure and language for identifying, tracking and making sense of the breadth and depth of innovation happening in climate technology globally.

The purpose of the Global Climate Tech Landscape is to create a granular and global open-source framework to enable insights such as:

  • Where are we seeing solutions and innovation? What is the velocity of formation, funding and growth? How is this changing over time?
  • Where are the gaps? When compared to the challenges we are facing, which areas are underweight or white-space?
  • Where are we seeing traction and momentum? Where might new science and technology find a commercial market to apply new novel innovations and achieve self-sustainability?

We look forward to sharing the Global Climate Tech 1000 and Landscape as we are all in final preparations for COP26.
