Climate Tech

As we look ahead to COP26 in Glasgow, ‘Innovation Critical – Scotland’s Net Zero Mission and Climate Tech Opportunity’ outlines Scotland’s potential to be a leading innovator and exporter of technological solutions to climate change.

Scotland could be best placed to harness new and emerging digital technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence and data analytics to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change.

But how? ​

Innovation Critical identifies seven challenges for Climate Tech in Scotland and proposes ten recommendations to grow Scotland’s Climate Tech sector and deliver a transition to net zero by 2045 which creates green jobs and boosts exports, innovation and productivity.

This report has been produced by a coming together of partners at BT, The Royal Society of Edinburgh, SCDI and ScotlandIS.
