Cutting-edge tools for climate action
An innovative toolbox to help accelerate the shift towards a dynamic solution agenda facilitating the development of an expanded climate and innovation agenda for a future where 11 billion people can live flourishing lives.See all tools
The Gigaton Opportunity
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.
Assessment and support guide
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.
Climate and innovation scanning
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.

Flow and mental pollution assessment using brain science
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.
Sector-based innovation guides
From product substitution to sustainable solutions for 11 billion people living flourishing lives
Understand your role in the 21st century innovation ecosystem
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.
Innovation quadrants for 11 billion flourishing lives on a regenerative planet
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.
