A Climate for Change | Tech takes on Climate Change
The use of innovative clean technology is a key factor in reducing carbon emissions, so how can you identify and utilise the best of these solutions to help achieve your sustainability targets?
At a recent CleanTech 2.0 Summit, some of the UK’s most forward-thinking CleanTech entrepreneurs set out how their ideas and inventions are starting to move the dial in terms of helping to cut global emissions, making society more sustainable, and creating value for shareholders.
The event, organised by C-suite network Winmark and hosted by Clyde & Co, aimed to inspire the business leaders in the audience to think outside the box when it comes to embedding clean technologies within their own organisations.
This was an opportunity to dig deeper into how some of these cutting-edge solutions can be implemented in the real world today, as companies seek to reduce their carbon footprints and improve their ESG performance.
The CleanTech 2.0 report provides an overview of the conversations that happened on the day and how businesses can work towards saving the planet by commercialising inventiveness and innovation.
As Richard Elks, Partner at Clyde & Co, said as he introduced the speakers:
One of the distinguishing features of sustainability, climate change and CleanTech, is that this is a shared challenge. There is a desire to share expertise, knowledge and ideas to address it, and that will require a concerted effort from all parts of the global economy. And that means there’s more than enough opportunity to go around. We can’t just use the technologies we already have at greater scale and efficiency. We need new ideas and more innovation.

Richard Power highlights the increasing regulatory and common law pressures pushing companies to commit to sustainability targets and stick to them and Richard Elks explains that “CleanTech 1.0 was very much focused on renewables, but CleanTech 2.0 is much broader, touching a whole range of applications. We need change across all aspects of business and all aspects of society across the globe”.
By coming together to share insights and experiences, businesses of all types, from entrepreneurial start-ups to major corporates, should feel better equipped to play their part in making that change happen.
