To beat climate change, we need decisive and exponential action. In the Exponential Climate Action Summits, we bring together the foremost thinkers and doers in climate action to discuss what innovations and policies exist that can bring the change required in order to halve emissions by 2030 in the Race To Zero.

We will explore how digitalization can enable sufficient action in businesses and governments. We will also discuss the solutions that digitalization brings in the sectors of energy, transport and industry, along with the frontrunners of each sector.

We need exponential climate action to halve emissions by 2030 and we have the solutions – but We Don't Have Time to wait. Join us in the Race to Zero!
