The Climate Innovators Network

Accelerating corporate climate action through innovation

Kite are seeking solutions to mitigate the potential impacts of climate change, enable adaptation to the challenges caused by climate change and accelerate the transition to a net-zero green economy.

Summary

Background

Kite Insights is a research and strategic communications agency. We think businesses have an urgent responsibility to society and the power to effect global change. But when the debates on global issues are so noisy, it’s hard for them to adopt a credible stance and contribute meaningfully to progress.

That’s why we’re here. We provide a 360 degree view of an issue, exposing the areas that require deep thinking and where an organisation’s voice is needed most. We help companies to articulate and amplify their stance across multiple audiences and platforms while incorporating social impact and responsibility into their broader business strategy.

We also deploy our content and curation expertise towards internal capacity-building for companies, helping them create new conditions for thriving in a green economy. Which is why we launched The Climate School - a climate training programme for corporates leading the green transition - and the Climate Innovators Network: an ecosystem of climate experts and innovators with the solutions to get them there.

Challenge

This Climate Innovators Network is looking for innovators to bring forward scalable solutions to climate change and experts who can actively participate in scaling these solutions.  

We are interested in anything that improves efficiencies, saves energy, and protects planetary boundaries; our aim is for corporates who join the network to find hidden inefficiencies and possibilities for innovation that they may not have thought about in their supply chains. 

Any non-confidential summaries of innovative solutions in these areas would be considered as part of the network, as well as experts with a proven track record of accelerating climate action.

What's in it for you?

The aim of this network is source climate innovations, bringing these to the attention of corporates who may wish to develop and use those solutions to accelerate their efforts on climate. The network also aims to generate impactful collaborations between experts, innovators and corporate members, to further accelerate climate solutions.

Technologies on the network can be anywhere from concept to commercially available and can signify when they apply if they need funding to get to a stage where they can be integrated or marketed.

As an innovator or expert on our network, you will gain exposure to some of the biggest global companies and showcasing the skills/innovations that you can bring to the table. We will use our curation and convening expertise to facilitate these deep and impactful relationships as this network grows.
