The Sustainable Innovation Forum is the largest business-focused event during the annual Conference of Parties (COP). The Forum is organised in partnership with the UN Environment – the world’s foremost body on environmental protection and stewardship.

Much more than a Forum

In 2017, during COP23, SIF brought together 600+ carefully handpicked delegates, including : Ministers of Energy and Climate Change, Blue Chip CEOs, Mayors, Responsible Investors, Development Banks, Green Entrepreneurs and media, for two packed days of capacity building, networking, collaboration and deal making that will galvanise and fast track the green economy.

The Forum took place steps away from the COP23 negotiation zone in award winning, purpose-built structures, the Climate Action Domes. The Domes hosted not only the SIF, but also a series of high-level industry meetings including: The US Climate Action Centre, the ‘Data for climate’ event by UN Global Pulse and Western Digital, as well as high level meetings organised by The Hydrogen Council, ICLEI & UN Environment, United for Efficiency and more.

COP24 and Katowice

Climate Action is excited to bring SIF to Katowice! The city’s sustainable revitalisation, economic transformation and eco-responsibility, as well as Poland’s upcoming Presidency of the Eastern European Group, position them as the ideal host for the climate negotiations. We look forward to the outcomes of COP24 and making the Paris Agreement fully operational.
