  • i
    To accelerate and scale up climate action we need novel metrics, finance and decision-making mechanisms. We need that in all economic sectors, from cities, agriculture and manufacturing to real estate and energy. ClimateLaunchpad creates a stage for ideas that make the business case for sustainability.
  • i
    An environmentally sustainable food system not only takes care of biodiversity and water and soil quality, it also secures a safe and affordable food supply for all. Together the very best ideas create a strong food industry in terms of jobs and growth.
  • i
    Innovations in the bio-economy create resilience for global food and forest value chains. The overwhelming demands on natural resources call for breakthroughs that prevent deforestation and degradation of land and that promote biodiversity and sustainable, efficient agriculture.
  • i
    It is key to eliminate emissions and waste in production processes. Economic growth can be achieved without the use of unsustainable resources and without greenhouse gas emissions. That’s why we have start-ups working on climate-friendly and economically viable circular models of manufacturing.
  • i
    Cities need to deal with climate risk and impact: be sustainable, zero-carbon and resilient. Our start-ups have viable ideas for major challenges in infrastructure, buildings, energy, water systems and drainage, sanitation, waste management, housing and mobility.
