With COP24 being hailed by the UNFCCC as ‘Paris 2.0’, the Sustainable Innovation Forum presents a crucial opportunity to drive forward the Paris Agreement framework by bringing together 600+ delegates engaged with fast-tracking the global green economy. The LowCVP's Managing Director Andy Eastlake will be speaking at the event, and the Partnership's association with it entitles members to a 10% discount on delegate fees.
Taking place at Vienna House, Katowice the forum is within walking distance of the COP24 negotiation zone. It is the premier meeting place for policy-makers and climate technology innovators to collaborate and exchange knowledge.
The forum will open with an innovation day providing thought leadership, deep-dive discussion, capacity building and networking on four key themes: Circular Economy, Energy Transition, Sustainable Mobility and Climate Finance. While day two will deliver further high level policy discussion and debate, structured and informal networking and inspirational keynote speeches by leading ministers, cities, multilateral organisations, investors and private sector vendors and solution providers.
Dr. Thomas Becker, Vice President of Government Affairs of the BMW Group, a sponsor of the event says: “The Sustainable Innovation Forum (SIF) brings together leading companies, high level ministers, mayors from cities all over the world and young professionals to discuss the obstacles and opportunities of sustainable development. It’s all about cooperation when tackling climate change. We always pick up new ideas and expand our network with the SIF.”
