What's new this year:

The Other Room
We’re adding an additional space for discussion on some of the unspoken truths in sustainability. In these off-the-record sessions, we’ll ask attendees to share mistakes and freely speak their minds as we have pragmatic and honest conversation about the future.

Cross-industry insights
We all recognize that collaboration plays a crucial role in ensuring a sustainable future. Join us our sector-focused sessions, as we invite industry leaders to share practical examples and insights on how to facilitate cross-industry collaboration to enable comprehensive climate action.

Practical, focused problem solving
We’re taking a number of breakout sessions and revamping the format to utilize the full extent of the expertise in the room. Join us on day 1 for our Scope 3 101 workshop, providing a comprehensive guide to tackle carbon emissions, and day 2, for our cross-industry case studies and Other Room sessions.

More networking, more connections
With increased schmoosing time, more side events and better networking options, we’re ensuring there’s the opportunity to make the connections that matter and build the partnerships that can really make a difference.

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.
