In the hard-hitting impact-oriented conclusion of GLOBE Forum, business leaders, government, not-for-profits, academics, cleantech innovators and youth will all come together on Feb. 13 for GLOBE Advance. In a completely new event format for GLOBE, experts from the GLOBE community will put pen to paper and develop strategic action plans to further the clean economy.

With $2.5 trillion global market opportunities on the table and 10 years and counting to meet Paris Agreement targets, now is the time for Canada to move from star tup to scale up and impact in clean technology. This session will explore:

  • The current state of Canadian cleantech and lessons learned
  • Challenges in scaling technologies and companies, as well as exporting
  • Solutions to accelerate the path to commercialization and impact

Expected outcome:  A prioritized list of next steps for Canada, including individual commitments and actions. Each participating organization is asked to come prepared to commit to some action that moves the needle on addressing barriers to scale-up.

Who should attend: 

  • Cleantech CEOs
  • Government departments  and funding agencies
  • Cleantech industry representatives
  • Accelerators, incubators and other ecosystem actors
  • Financial institutions
  • Innovation and research and development experts
  • Buyers and developers
  • Institutional investors
