COP26 ... More Talk or Action?
The UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) kicks-off this weekend and runs from October 31st to November 12th. Several weeks ago I wrote about the four goals of COP26 with a focus on the 'mobising finance' goal.
The news headlines over the past year are filled with new venture and private equity funds announcements that aim to address certain aspects of climate change. Even more announcements have been made about start-ups tackling specific problems for carbon accounting, responsibly sourced gas, and climate intelligence to name a few. Numerous public companies have made public statements about sustainability goals for 2030 and beyond.
My heart and mind is with those taking action. I'm planning another series to highlight the founders and funds that are doing what others only seem to be talking about.
Here are a couple that you will read about in the coming weeks:
* a company sucking co2 for everyone's benefit
* a venture firm taking risks in renewable software
* a bootstrapped start-up tackling the hydrogen market
* a private equity group that has an unorthodox energy thesis
* a corporate innovation group predicting
Do you know of a company that should be on my list? Hit reply or send me a note at [email protected].
There is no doubt that COP26 will be full of surprises, especially with the climate policies and investment coupled with the increasing global demand for energy. It will be an exciting two weeks as the global stage is set for countries to work together while debating climate policy, energy security, and international finance.
