Exponential summits

Bringing together innovators, disruptors and transformers taking action in line with 1.5°C to scale exponential climate action and solutions

Solutions House

Can we build a new Solutions Economy?

In 2022 we must answer ‘yes’.

This Climate Week, something very special will happen. Leaders, experts, entrepreneurs, youth activists, storytellers, innovators and influencers will gather with one objective: drive exponential climate solutions.

The motto of Solutions House is ‘answers only’. Every one of our debates, showcases, ideation sessions and workshops will be held in that spirit.

By attending Solutions House in person or online, solutionists will help bring to life and accelerate the solutions economy. Sessions include; launching new Solutions Economy Principles and how to scale them exponentially, Setting out how halving emissions by 2030 in value chains is both possible and desirable and the official launch of the 1.5 Business Playbook v.2.0 – the global guide to Exponential business strategies.

Solutions House is an opportunity to meet the leading actors within climate and sustainability and meet others from the Futerra, Exponential Roadmap Initiative & Google ecosystem aligned with 1.5°C ambition and action.

Exponential Race to Zero – Stockholm+50

Watch the 3 minute video from the Exponential Race to Zero events, with over 31 million viewers from more than 160 countries. Hosted by We Don’t Have Time, Exponential Roadmap Initiative, United Nations’ Race to Zero and We Mean Business Coalition, the events showcased examples of leading innovative, disruptive and transformative companies taking climate action in line with science.

Hosted at the Sthlm+50 Climate Hub, with over 31 million viewers from 160+ countries and 1000+ delegates in physical attendance, the Exponential Race to Zero was hosted together with We Don’t Have Time, United Nations’ Race to Zero and We Mean Business Coalition. 

The series of events focused on the game-changers in energy efficiency, green energy, travel & transport, plant-based food, regenerative agriculture, protection & restoring of nature and maximizing positive impacts from digitalization. 

We brought together leading transformers and disruptors – all aligned with the 1.5°C ambition – collaborating with peers towards zero emission and circular value chains. Together we identified concrete actions to remove the blockers to enable scaling up faster and further to COP27- a step-up on an exponential journey.

Read the press release, or find more information on the events below.

“We need to halve global emissions by 2030 and become nature positive at the same time to tackle the climate emergency. We have the answers in our hands – we just need sharper action. The solutions to halve emissions by 2030 exist in all sectors and many are scaling  exponentially. This is the moment to scale even faster and make a pull-in. The companies that realize that today are the winners of tomorrow”

Johan Falk
CEO & Co-founder, Exponential Roadmap Initiative

“The good news is that climate action and demand for green energy is rising exponentially. But it is not sufficient, I hope S+50 will spur action towards a breakthrough tipping point to exit the fossil energy crisis and towards a net zero emissions world”

Nigel Topping
UK High Level Climate
Action Champion for COP26

“We are seeing huge momentum from businesses taking action to cut their emissions and calling on governments to support them to go further and faster. We have the solutions across energy and nature to halve global emissions by 2030. I hope S+50 can inspire businesses of all sizes and sectors – in collaboration with governments – to accelerate the scale up of these solutions at pace and leave no community behind”

María Mendiluce
CEO of the We Mean Business Coalition

Previous summits

Exponential Climate Action Summit V — Nature in the Race to Zero

April 2022

Hosted on Earth Day, the fifth Exponential Climate Action Summit explored the role of nature in the Race to Zero, including how nature-based solutions can help us deliver a third of the greenhouse gas reductions needed by 2030 to meet the Paris Agreement.

We need to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century to keep the global temperature below 1,5°C. While the focus has primarily been on reducing fossil fuel dependency, there is no viable route to limiting global warming and building resilience without urgently protecting, managing, and restoring nature

Exponential Climate Action Summit IV — COP26

November 2021

Daily live broadcasts from COP26 in Glasgow, and from hubs in Stockholm, Helsinki, Washington DC and Nairobi- hosted by We Don’t Have Time. Exponential Climate Action Summit VI covered Food Production & Nature-based solutions, Innovation & Digitalization, Energy & Transportation, Finance and Industry & Buildings.

Exponential Climate Action Summit III — Circularity and the Race to Zero

September 2021

Our third Exponential Climate Action Summit focused on the challenges, opportunities, and creative solutions regarding circularity and resource efficiency. We bring together transformers, disruptors, and enablers to explore how a circular economy can contribute to lowering emissions while also addressing human needs

Exponential Climate Action Summit II — Financing the Race to Zero

April 2021

At our second Exponential Climate Action Summit we bring together transformers, disruptors and enablers focusing on how to finance the Race to Zero. Our societies need to halve CO2 emissions by 2030 and continue toward zero by 2050, by scaling climate solutions exponentially. Capital must enable the exponential transformation and the financial sector must be exponentially transformed.

Exponential Climate Action Summit I — Race to Zero through digitalization

September 2020

Hosted at Climate Week, the Exponential Climate Action Summit brought together the foremost thinkers and doers in climate action to discuss what innovations and policies exist that can bring the change required in order to halve emissions by 2030 in the Race To Zero. 

We have explored how digitalization can enable sufficient action in businesses and governments. We have also discussed the solutions that digitalization brings in the sectors of energy, transport and industry, along with the frontrunners of each sector.

Earth Day Week broadcast

April 2020

Hosted during Earth Day week, the program featured the brightest minds to discuss solutions to the climate crisis, covering the themes: finance, circular economy& consumption, big ideas & education and food & agriculture. 450 000 daily viewers from 140+ countries tuned in to this online no-fly climate conference.
