Under the High Patronage of His Serene Highness, Prince Albert II, Transition Monaco Forum, a new global platform committed to accelerating the transition towards a clean future across all sectors and industries, will convene global business leaders, policymakers, cleantech experts, and innovators at The Grimaldi Forum in Monaco from June 26-27, 2018.
In response to commitments made during COP 21 and the One Planet Summit, and by developing new business models combining prosperity and sustainability as well as identifying the latest technologies and implementing initiatives for companies to pioneer this change, Transition Monaco Forum aims to accelerate the ecological and energy transition.
The objectives of this exciting new initiative are to form a European hub of investors dedicated to financing the ecological and energy transition and to mobilize key stakeholders across all sectors to find concrete solutions for businesses to develop sustainably.
Gathered in Monaco, a country leading the energy transition, participants will debate the five critical enablers of the cleantech ecosystem: finance, regulation, innovation, cities and territories and new stakeholders.
