Women in Climate Tech: Reaching Net-Zero by 2050

Date TBA

To keep global warming to no more than 1.5°C – as per the Paris Agreement – emissions need to reach net zero by 2050. The 2022 passage of the Inflation Reduction Act provides strong tailwinds to the flourishing Climate Tech ecosystem, which has been working hard to bring economically viable solutions to bear.

Hear from the women at the forefront of climate tech – from startup founders to investors – about the types of innovative technologies emerging to help reduce the carbon impact of the global real estate industry, responsible for 40% of total greenhouse gas emissions when a building’s full life cycle is taken into account.

We’ll cover cutting-edge solutions being implemented today, how to drive public/private sector collaboration, and the importance of hiring women in technical fields.
