The Summit taking the EU to net zero

The European Union has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to lead the race to net zero. As policymakers enact ambitious decarbonisation targets, EU cleantech innovators are paving the way for a new climate and industrial leadership.

To seize this leadership, the EU must learn to scale up its clean technologies and create the conditions for wide adoption and a just transition.
Our new series of events is bridging the gap between the innovation and policy worlds. Each quarter, cleantech CEOs and investors share the stage with leading policymakers to discuss the EU’s future.

Venture Capital funding for cleantech has reached record highs, multiplying by 7.5x over the last decade. However, significant funding gaps remain at the growth stage, hampering the success of EU innovators. How can decisive policymaking create the right financing conditions to fuel the rise of EU cleantech?

Roundtable: From demos to scale, from cleantech to climate and industrial leadership

The EU has become a hotspot for early-stage clean technologies. But innovators trying to scale up across the EU are facing a lack of demand signals and fragmented markets, leading many to relocate to other regions in search of growth. Can policymakers and innovators work together to create a new climate and industrial leadership for the EU?
