Investing in Nascent Climate Technologies

New technologies are essential for solving the climate crisis in the 21st century. Any pathway to averting climate change depends, at some level, on breakthroughs in areas such as energy, transportation, and carbon removal. Without innovation in these areas, addressing climate change will be far more difficult, if not impossible.

Many investors are keen to help address the climate crisis, and they can have a crucial role to play in supporting nascent climate technologies. Please join us for a lively online discussion on the unique challenges and opportunities of investing in nascent technologies that could critically reduce emissions.

The conversation will explore the current state of affairs for climate technology investing, including the potential implications of COVID-19.
