BusinessGreen launches new Net Zero Innovate Hub

New content hub to explore critical role of innovation in accelerating the net zero transition

BusinessGreen has today launched the new Net Zero Innovate Hub, kicking off a series of features and interviews exploring the vital role of innovation in the net zero transition and the way in which businesses are accelerating the development of exciting new green technologies and business models.

Launched to coincide with today's sixth annual BusinessGreen Technology and Investment Forum, the hub will provide a key plank in this year's Net Zero Festival alongside the new Net Zero Finance and Nature Hubs, providing a dedicated platform for BusinessGreen's coverage of the innovations that will help drive the net zero transition. 

The new hub, which is delivered with support from Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and construction materials giant Kingspan, will also feature a series of high profile video interviews and panel discussions over the coming months, which will see BusinessGreen interview leading clean tech innovators and explore how exciting new technologies can be deployed at pace and scale.

"The net zero transition requires unprecedented levels of innovation across every corner of the economy," said BusinessGreen editor James Murray. "For over a decade we've reported on many of the world's most exciting clean technologies and now we're delighted to have a new platform to showcase the innovations that are going to drive the development of a net zero emission economy."

The Net Zero Innovate Hub forms part of the Net Zero Festival 2021, which continues on May 27th with the virtual Net Zero Nature Summit tickets, tickets for which can be reserved now through the event website. The main Festival will then take place over three days from September 29th, featuring a host of top speakers and major partners, including BCG, Schroders, ENGIE, Bank of America, SNC Lavalin, Kingspan, and GSK.

Bas Sudmeijer, a managing director and partner at BCG, said the consultancy giant was delighted to support the new Net Zero Innovate Hub.

"Innovation is at the heart of the net zero transition and all businesses are going to have to engage with new technologies and business models as decarbonisation gathers pace," he said. "That's why we're keen to see new innovations showcased and help advance the conversation around how best to navigate the fast-evolving green innovation landscape."
