A new wave of technology companies and a new wave of investors have emerged with a drive and commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. Europe has been leading the way since the Paris Agreement in implementing changes that help limit global warming to below 1.5 degrees Celsius, mainly through governance initiatives and policies that the world started to follow. Asian countries on the other hand only started to announce net zero plans and related commitments in 2020, but the buzz in ecosystems, policy circles and the activity of the corporate and finance world have been picking up. As Asia contributes to more than 50% of the world's CO2 emissions this is important. It is well understood that technology is essential to achieve decarbonization targets, regardless of the region. Our panel of investors, active in either, or both continents will discuss the similarities and the differences in trends, the challenges and opportunities for specific technology's scale and adoption. We will also debate whether climate tech is a cleantech bubble 2.0 or the real deal.
