The climate tech landscape is evolving faster than ever before. From the promise of AI for smart energy to floating wind farms and battery innovations and recycling. The transformation is speeding-up but also bringing forth new risks. We will need to ensure that the highest emitting sectors can benefit at scale to drive down emission reduction and ensure that business, policy and finance unite to ensure innovation and investment is made where it is needed the most – including the Global South and communities most impacted by climate change.
