Over 45% of the emission reductions needed to reach net zero by 2050 will arise through the adoption of climate technologies that are still under development. We are here to safeguard its growth.

In addition, we provide our founders with direct connections to investors, multinationals, academics, and policy makers – ensuring they have every opportunity to secure the funding and partnerships they need to succeed.
We are committed to empowering our startups to scale up their emissions-reducing technologies, foster investment, drive the adoption of climate solutions, and shape the future of climate-friendly policies.
The programme has previously supported over 100 climate tech startups over 3 years.
