The event will take place at the Hub Culture Paris Pavilion in central Paris from 14:00 – 15:30.

Science has set the boundaries for an achievable 2°C trajectory by the end of the century. It requires an emissions reduction equivalent to cutting the combined carbon footprint of the USA and EU in their entirety by 2030!

To step up to this monumental challenge, we need business to break out of a cycle of business as usual incrementalism. We need to stimulate a step change in the creation and diffusion of transformational innovation.

Join us as we launch a new report on scaling up innovation to create value and sustainable prosperity for the global economy.
