INNOVATE4CLIMATE (I4C), hosted by the World Bank Group, is an annual global conference on climate finance, climate investment and climate markets. It attracts leaders focused on transformative and innovative action on climate change. Launched in 2017, I4C is designed to bring together thought leaders interested in linking climate innovation with investment opportunities – transforming dialogue into action.

I4C builds upon CARBON EXPO, the global forum on carbon markets from 2003 to 2016. CARBON EXPO was recognized as the premier annual platform for both private and public sector players to develop the carbon market infrastructure and to connect and collaborate on carbon markets and climate financing instruments.

The Agenda 2030 and Paris Agreement set a new direction for shaping the global climate finance landscape by including climate action in a broader set of climate finance and policy instruments and attract a wider group of stakeholders, including the financial and technology sectors.

In its first three years, I4C has positioned itself as the preeminent global event on climate change action and has built a reputation for high quality technical knowledge sharing. Each year, I4C has focused on various themes in climate finance, climate investment, climate markets and climate policy.
