About this event

The Government's ambition to reduce carbon emissions to net-zero levels by 2050 is one of the country's biggest challenges. In November 2020 the Government released its Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, with green finance and innovation at its very core. The UK is well-placed to position itself as leaders on the international green stage, with G7 and COP26 on the horizon, and it will take a national effort to achieve it.

New technologies needed to decarbonise our economies, homes and way of life are vast and all encompassing. They are also commercially viable. The CGF is at the forefront of seizing opportunities in the low carbon transition, recently announcing investments in Indra and Piclo.

Our panel event chaired by Head of Decarbonisation, James Watson, we are delighted to be joined by Beverley Gower-Jones, Managing Partner at CGF, James Bevan, Chief Investment Officer at the CCLA and Mark Taylor, Deputy Director Energy Innovation at BEIS. The focus of this session will be the role of investors on the road to net-zero and we'll look to cover topics such as exciting areas of opportunity, scalable innovation, where are the risks associated with early stage clean tech and how to mitigate the risk.

Following the panel section there will be dedicated time available for networking with like-minded individuals and our speakers.
