With the UK government declaring a climate emergency, the cleantech sector is poised to play a pivotal role in bringing innovation, clean growth and a sustainable future together. Join us to hear world-renowned experts battle the all-important question – can we both ensure the 1.5 C target is achieved and enable a prosperous economy? 

During this day-long conference, you will hear from experts in the field about how clean technology can help to overcome global challenges and create a more sustainable future. If you are an SME, you will be able to meet three ‘innovation hungry’ corporates seeking cleantech solutions for their businesses: Enzen, Anglian Water and Urban and Civic.

Who is this for?

Businesses, entrepreneurs and academics interested in learning how clean innovation can help us achieve Sustainable Development Goals.

What’s in it for you?

A chance to meet and network with academics and entrepreneurs working in the field of clean technology, and to learn from renowned experts and businesses working to build sustainable solutions.
