The Hub Live

An introduction to The Hub Live

On Monday and Tuesday, September 18 - 19, 2023, Climate Group hosted The Hub Live. Bringing together more than 1,000 of the most influential leaders from business, government, and the climate sector. This is where we joined forces to learn, share and collaborate, to overcome the challenges in our path.

Day One of The Hub Live was all about Showcasing Action. Day Two explored the New Frontiers of Climate Action. The interactive program of innovative solutions, technologies and ideas consisted of three plenary flagship sessions and four themes that ran throughout the two days.

  • The New Industrial Revolution
    The revolutionary changes underway to deliver net zero industry and construction.
  • The Energy and Transport Transition
    Accelerating zero-emission, smarter energy and transport systems, removing the roadblocks.
  • Nature, Food Systems and Health
    Achieving a just transition in agriculture and nature, engaging food supply chains and enhancing environmental health.
  • Financing the Green Economy
    Driving growth in investment that’s equitable and fair.
