This business conference will deep dive into how business can deliver on net-zero commitments with a specific focus on supply chain decarbonization. Throughout focused discussion, we’ll assess the main areas of Scope 3 opportunity, challenges and innovation across industries. 

Over the two days, we’ll address how business can turn climate policy risks into opportunity, set credible Scope 3 targets, and the practical solutions for driving down supply chain emissions. We’ll equip delegates with the best-practice and guidance for communicating Scope 3 action, engaging suppliers, measuring and tracking progress, and more.

Making connections at The Future of Climate Action

How can attendees network virtually?

Speed networking

No need to hang around the coffee cart to begin making connections - join our virtual speed networking for a series of quick-fire 1:1 meetings. Often the highlight of our virtual events, you will have the opportunity to meet a range of attendees within a short amount of time. Then, follow up with new connections and schedule longer, private meetings to continue the discussion.

Group networking

During group networking sessions, attendees are placed in small groups for more relaxed, informal networking. Groups are rotated so you have the chance to meet a variety of people and leave with fresh connections and potential partners. 

Schedule meetings

Often at our online events, discussions begin in the chat boxes during sessions and continue behind closed doors for more in-depth conversation between interested parties. Our platform enables you to reach out to other attendees and arrange 1:1 and group meetings. Maximise your impact at the event, and effectively manage your day. 


Working groups

During working group sessions all attendees join intimate, face-to-face calls to enable a genuine dialogue and ensure engagement. These sessions are a great opportunity to connect with other attendees who share a common interest and kick-start the conversation. 

Another great conference by Innovation Forum. The virtual sessions all worked very smoothly and I was delighted to be involved
-
I thoroughly enjoyed the conference and Innovation Forum managed to make the technology work flawlessly. The speed networking sessions were also a great way to loosen-up the typical strict structures of such events
-
Absolutely brilliant event. Innovation Forum were able to put together a very well run event, which is not easy when it is entirely virtual. Everything was very engaging and extremely informative, and the speed networking was great
-
I only have good things to say about Innovation Forum’s virtual event, the platform and how they have adapted to our new reality.
-
Really enjoying the sessions – the set-up is extremely professional – definitely the best virtual conference I’ve attended.

What’s different about this forum?

Innovation Forum is:
  • Candid: Entirely off-the-record discussion that enables open and honest disclosure from speakers and genuine participation from the audience.
  • Practical: A clear focus on the practical and actionable guidance that can drive change throughout industries and supply chains.
  • Focused: We provide enough time, resources and expertise to the issues that really matter. We don’t skate the surface, but get to the crux of the issues to provide in-depth, constructive discussion.
Innovation Forum is NOT:
  • A PR platform: Enthusiastic speakers are NOT given free rein to fill a session presenting their companies, allowing no time to actually get to the crux of the issues.
  • A talking shop: This is NOT an opportunity for a group people in a room to simply agree with everything said, regardless of outcomes.
  • All promise, no delivery: We will NOT promise what we can’t deliver. The issues covered are complex. They won’t be solved at a two-day conference. But we will help deliver progress through in-depth, constructive and practical advice around specific issues.
