Further Information

A new centre for climate change innovation is an initiative of Imperial College London and the Royal Institution to catalyse innovation of all forms that address the causes and effects of climate change. It is backed by six founding members, the Mayor of London, HSBC, Arup Partners, Octopus Centre for Net Zero, Pollination Group and Slaughter & May.

The centre will bring businesses, entrepreneurs, policy makers, academics and the public together around climate change innovation, creating a focus for London based innovators to implement global change through pioneering, practical solutions.

The launch event will be introduced by Professor Ian Walmsley, Provost of Imperial College London and Sir Richard Sykes, Chairman of the Royal Institution and will include a message from the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan and a round table discussion between the Founding Members and three guests on the vital importance of rapid action against climate change and the practical solutions the centre can and should create. The discussion will also be an opportunity for audience members to participate in a Q&A.
