COP 27 Unlocks Power of Climate Tech Scale-ups, National Innovation Programs

‘GreenTech + GovTech = Public Sector Climate Action’


Within the framework of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 27), an interactive session is held on November 12, under the title “GreenTech + GovTech = Public Sector Climate Action.” It will take place at 10:00 AM-12:00 PM at the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) Pavilion in the Green Zone. The session will be streamed online via: https://zoom.us/j/94320292910.

The session will shed light on companies that have come through the Global Scale-Up Programme (GSUP), in addition to Egyptian start-ups. GSUP is an international collaboration program that brings together stakeholders across governments, NGOs, the climate change community, investors and academia from around the world to engage and collaborate with scale-ups to shine a spotlight on climate technology solutions.

This collaboration between governments, academia, NGOs and pioneering tech businesses is the embodiment of the COP 27 Goal of Collaboration. The GSUP seeks to bridge the divide between environmental policy and tangible impact on the ground through technologies that help address both the effects and causes of the climate crisis.

The lineup of speakers includes officials from MCIT, the CivTech Alliance in Scotland, and GovTech Lab Lithuania, and representatives of GSUP companies, including CiRCLR in New Zealand, Project Green Group in Australia, Tupinambá in Brazil, Blockchain Triangle in the US, Lemobs in Brazil, ValAi in Australia, and WeDRT in the UK.

A number of topics will be discussed during the session, covering how to design and deliver an intergovernmental program focused on climate action, how companies specializing in climate technology deliver solutions for the public sector and citizens, and the investment opportunities offered through climate-focused technologies.

Hosted in the green city of Sharm El-Sheikh on November 6-18, COP 27 is a gear-shifting point as the world pivots from negotiations to implementation. Around 197 countries are participating in this flagship event to present and discuss their plans to reduce carbon emissions and reach net-zero by 2050.
