Brite Innovation Review Autumn Issue

  October 2021  
 

We need to take action on climate change, and we need to do it now. Last month’s IPCC report spelled that message out loudly and clearly, warning us just how little time there is left to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases enough to limit global warming to 1.5°C. As the world's eyes are on the preparations for COP26 in Glasgow, we decided to dedicate this edition to the single biggest issue facing us all today, whether it's in policy, industry, finance, science or on an individual level: the need to stop climate change and secure humanity's future.

 
 

We also look into ambitious government strategies for green recovery: the US's $550bn clean energy investment bill, which hopes to modernise everything from power generation to public transport, and the UK’s hydrogen strategy, which aims to generate £4bn in private investment for cleaner energy infrastructure by 2030.

Elsewhere, we explore the power private-sector and foreign direct investment holds in supporting climate action, and take a look at sustainable technology innovations coming out of small and medium-sized businesses supported by regional funding.
