This is a toolbox to help support an expanded climate and innovation agenda. Where the focus is on human needs and the solution provided can deliver on those needs in a way that supports a future where 11 billion people can live flourishing lives on a regenerative planet.
Publications, framework documents, and assessments from MI members and other stakeholders an expanded climate and innovation agenda for a future where 11 billion people can live flourishing lives.
Snapshots from events, media and processes where the work under Mission Innovations Net-Zero Compatible Innovations Initiative (NCI) have been presented and/or discussed.
NCI was launched at the third Mission Innovation Ministerial meeting to develop a Framework for Assessing Avoided Emissions to support investors and funders to identify those system solutions and technologies that have significant ability or potential to contribute to reduced greenhouse gas emissions in society, so called, avoided emissions.
Identifying support for accelerated uptake of 1.5 °C compatible and globally sustainable solutions. Inspiring a new generation of climate and innovation leadership where the focus is on:
1. The human needs required for flourishing lives for everybody.
2. The solutions/solution providers who can deliver such solutions.
In addition to the traditional work to reduce emissions from current large emitters based on sectors.

With an expanded climate innovation agenda, the need to support and assess innovations and solution providers (rather than only focus on stakeholders as sources as emissions) is rapidly increasing. As the world is rapidly changing the drivers and opportunities will change. In order to meet different and changing demands this platform is user driven. It is meant as a matchmaking platform where users of assessments can communicate their needs to those developing tools and initiatives.
Mission Innovation NIC/RISE together with OECD are co-developing a tool to support policy makers explore an expanded climate innovation with the help of a full iceberg approach.
In order to deliver globally sustainable solutions that allow everyone to live flourishing lives on a regenerative planet there is a need to move beyond a focus on single products and materials to system solutions. The Innovation quadrant for 11 billion flourishing lives is a way to illustrate the need to both address climate change and land-use as well as making the system solutions cost efficient. Today too many initiatives are just trying to make fossil free versions of current products, ignoring land-use and resource efficiency as well as affordability. Using the Innovation quadrant can help you move from a narrow product/material perspective to a human need driven innovation agenda with system solutions.
For Incubators/Accelerators, Initiatives, and anyone else supporting the accelerated uptake of a new generation of globally sustainable solutions delivering avoided emissions for a future where everyone on the planet can live flourishing lives. The webpage was launched at the Mission Innovation ministerial meeting in Goa the 19-22nd of July 2023.
To capture the opportunities in the 4th industrial revolution and deliver on what is needed to address the global challenges facing humanity the innovation ecosystem must move from the current linear model with focus on improving existing system. It is time to build a 21st century innovation system with focus on sustainable solutions that deliver on human needs in ways that are compatible with a future where 11 billion people can live flourishing lives on a regenerative planet in balance. Such a system must be able to deliver system solutions, support exponential uptake and differentiate between tools and goals.
Using neuroscience to guide a new generation of companies that want to make the world a better place. This assessment is an important part of the toolbox for globally sustainable solutions. In addition to providing guidance for key stakeholders when it comes to identifying, supporting and accelerating solutions for the 21st century it also has the potential to provide guidance for a post SDG agenda with focus on flourishing lives for all on a regenerative planet.
