To build the new climate economy, we need better information and data
After the commitments and pledges comes the hard work of building the infrastructure we need to achieve net zero. We must rethink and reinvent the way we power ourselves, what we eat, where we live, and how we move. The climate transition is the economic revolution of our generation. We need to innovate our way to solutions then race to deploy them.
On paper, it’s easy to build forecasts for decades in the future, where the deployment of climate solutions is up and to the right, and climate technologies like hydrogen, carbon capture, green steel, and battery recycling are ubiquitous. In practice, it’s much harder to build a strategy for the now. Investors, corporates, and governments play key roles building and financing the new climate economy, but they want to be sure they’re making the right decisions for the climate and their stakeholders. They need to have a clear sightline into which new climate sectors and technologies hold real potential and when the inflection points will inevitably happen, as they have for solar and wind.
We started by putting pen to paper with CTVC, the leading newsletter on climate innovation read by 60,000 industry leaders in climate. As the shift from innovation to deployment began underway, we recognized that we needed to go deeper and broader to bring clarity to a quickly evolving climate transition.
From there came Sightline Climate - a climate-first market intelligence platform that organizes the climate ecosystem, providing tactical research and insights, and bringing clarity to climate.
