Decarb Connect Festival February 21-23, 2023

To accelerate industrial decarbonisation through collaborative innovation

The Decarb Connect Festival is a global summit that champions the strategies capable of fast tracking decarbonisation in the toughest-to-abate sectors.  Join the festival from 22-23 February 2022.

The festival is now in 3rd year, bringing together 400+ virtual attendees in 2022. For 2023, we plan to bring the Festival to you in-person for the first time.

We’re still refining the agenda for 2023, if you’re interested in speaking, let us know.

The Decarb Connect Festival brings together industrials, investors, policymakers, game changing technologies and innovators – all sharing evidence-based strategies and road maps that will inspire all stakeholders to rise to the net zero challenge. If you are responsible for defining industrial net zero strategy, or for implementing it, this is your cohort.

Access our Taster Pack so you know what to expect from the agenda.

Register your interest to keep updated with the agenda preview, coming soon.

“We’re usually pretty siloed, but we know we’ll need to work across our whole value chain to decarbonise… we need to work out how to get commitments & then to make sure that these projects benefit all participants in terms of reporting”

“There’s no strategy in “electrify – just use more renewables”.  I need reliable and powerful energy sources that can really drive industrial heat consistently… and I need it to be cost effective”

“To hit NetZero by 2050 means having major pilots completed in the next 5 years… emissions unlikely to be static in that time so the scale of this challenge will only increase”
