Link to event

The 7th Sustainable Innovation Forum will be held during the annual Conference of Parties (COP22), taking place on 15- 16 November in Marrakech, Morocco.

Working in partnership with the UN Environment Programme, SIF16 is recognised as the largest business-focused side event taking place during the annual COP. Uniting over 750 CEOs, city leaders, policy makers and UN heads, SIF16 will once again act as a platform on which to drive climate action.

This year’s themes include:
  • Low carbon energy development
  • Energy efficiency
  • Water economy
  • Sustainable solid and liquid waste management
  • Inclusive agriculture
  • Green finance
  • Aquaculture and ecotourism
  • Youth engagement and entrepreneurship


Last year, at COP21 in Paris a legally binding global climate target was agreed by all 196 member parties with the aim of capping climate change well below two degrees of warming.

Countries are now tasked with developing strong low carbon strategies, driving the partnerships and funding opportunities  to accelerate this transition. 

COP22 represents the first COP at which these pathways will begin to be identified, providing a platform for cross sector stakeholders to come together to build the future.
