The latest climate science makes it clear that the world needs to go from Net Zero to Climate Positive by 2040 (not 2050), and investors need to decarbonize even sooner.”

“Technology can make the process of applying for and using public money more efficient and easier for communities. There is a gap in the market for technology-policy expansion to align state and local governments to interact around the capital available to fund some of the biggest and brightest solutions. I am funding the development tool of this gap in the market to enable large scale deployment and get funding where it needs to go. I am pleased to announce that this will be done in partnership with Elected Officials to Protect America (EOPA) a non-partisan organization with over 20,000 lawmakers across the country. EOPA supports the implementation of the Department of Energy’s Inflation Reduction Act in partnership through our National Climate Task Force of elected officials, veterans and tribal leaders.”

Nisaa Jetha, Global Impact Strategist, maintains through Impact-for-SDGs comments:

The emerging technology-policy space will truly shape the landscape as new forms of capital are unleashed. Technology can democratize access to public funding for applicants looking for further climate solutions and achieve some of the key Sustainable Development Goals and why I am investing in this new innovation. The next stage of our growth will require solutions across the sector, and I am delighted to be participating in the Climate Challenge Lab at COP27 in the Innovation Zone.”

Another solution highlighted in the Climate Change Lab is lead by Stephan Nicoleau, Managing Director of FullCycle commenting on the need for deep methane mitigation measures. Nicoleau said:

“The science has been clear – we need to implement deep methane mitigation measures and introduce real assets that can reduce methane emissions across key sectors – oil and gas, agriculture and waste among them. The task now is to mobilize private capital and create permanent pathways for private sector resources to be used in methane reduction solutions at scale, mapped to countries’ needs in a prioritized manner. We are leading a private sector consortium coming together to support the Global Methane Pledge and suggest upgrading its holdings to align more closely with material methane reduction globally.”
