SIF17 - Highlights

"We need to prove that protecting the environment is profitable and in everyone's best interests. We can do this by holding up successful examples."
Erik Solheim, Executive Director of UN Environment

Climate Action, in partnership with UN Environment, would like to extend our deepest thanks to all sponsors, speakers, partners and attendees who joined us at SIF17. You can now access the official Forum photos here and the event coverage here

Taking place alongside COP23, adjacent to the Bula zone, SIF17 brough together 800+ carefully hand picked delegates, including: Ministers of Energy and Climate Change, Blue Chip CEOs, Mayors, Responsible Investors, Development Banks, Green Entrepreneurs and media, for two packed days of capacity building, networking, collaboration and deal making that will galvanise and fast track the green economy. 

Governments, cities and regions from the 152 countries that have ratified the Paris Agreement, must now meet their national climate change commitments ( INDC’s ) so they are looking for the clean energy, low carbon transport and finance solutions to make this a reality.

SIF17 provides a world class line up of keynotes, panel discussions, networking sessions, live interviews, innovation spotlights, CEO panels, Mayors breakfast briefings and much more.

The 8th Sustainable Innovation Forum takes place steps away from the COP23 ‘Bula Zone’!

The Sustainable Innovation Forum was hosted on DHL’s lawn, in the shadow of the 162.5 metre Post Tower - a building powered by 100% certified renewable energy. On the DHL lawn, SIF took place inside award-winning inflatable structures, the Climate Action Domes.

Alongside SIF17, we were delighted to host a variety of side events in the Climate Action Domes, including:

-The US Climate Action Centre by W​e Are Still In

-The 'Data for climate’ event by UN Global Post and Western Digital

as well as high level meetings organised by The Hydrogen CouncilICLEI & UN EnvironmentUnited for Efficiency and more.
