Innovate4Climate (I4C) is an integral part of the global dialogue on climate finance, climate investment, and climate markets. It convenes leaders from business, banking, finance, policy, and technology to think innovatively about how to leverage and direct investment toward low-carbon economies.
I4C attracts leaders focused on transformative action on climate change. I4C delegates represent the diversity of stakeholders engaged in addressing the climate challenge. The event is designed to bring together leading thinkers interested in linking climate innovation with investment opportunities – transforming dialogue into action.
2019 will represent the 3rd Edition of I4C and will build on previous events in Barcelona (2017) and Frankfurt (2018), which focused on unlocking the trillions in private sector investment needed to scale up national climate plans and to accelerate the global transition to a low-carbon, climate-resilient future and the development of innovative financing instruments and approaches to support low-carbon, climate-resilient development pathways.
The I4C 2019 summit will focus on three areas where meaningful transformation is possible:
- Sustainable cooling
- Battery storage
- Climate smart urban development
