For 13 years, Climate Action has been uniting heads of state and multilaterals, environment ministers, business leaders, investors, and NGOs alongside the UN Climate Change negotiations, convening the largest multi-stakeholder forum at COP: The Sustainable Innovation Forum (SIF).
The 2022 Forum takes place alongside COP27 in Sharm El-Sheik in Egypt as a hybrid event. The “real economy” role in the transition to net zero is critical. The SIF platform offers stakeholders the opportunity to have a tangible impact at COP both in-person and online by helping forge cross sector partnerships, spotlighting effective business action, highlighting the power of green finance and showcasing innovative solutions that will enable us to deliver on the SDGs and reach net zero.
KAUST is going to participate on the 10th of November. President of KAUST, Prof. Tony Chan takes part in a panel with the leading statement “Bold Leadership: Embracing Collaboration and Competition”. Therefore one of the questions the representatives will debate is, how can we accelerate the impactful deployment of innovation from partnerships between business, government, and academic sectors?
