Taking place on the side-lines of COP24, the 9th annual Sustainable Innovation Forum 2018 will deliver the most engaging, informative, and wide-reaching Forum yet.

The Sustainable Innovation Forum will drive forward the Paris Agreement framework by bringing together 600 hand-picked delegates engaged with fast-tracking the global green economy.

The Forum will open with an ‘innovation day’ where attendees will be privy to hear first-hand insights on four key drivers: Circular Economy, Energy Transition, Sustainable Mobility, and Climate Finance. Attendees will benefit from thought leadership sessions, deep-dive discussions, capacity-building, and networking.

Day two will deliver further high-level policy discussion and debate, inspirational keynote speeches, and networking opportunities with leading ministers, heads of state, cities, multilateral organisations, investors, and private-sector vendors and solution providers.

The Forum is the premier meeting place to forge partnerships, discover innovative solutions, and meet with the most influential players in climate change policy.
