Southeast Asia is currently on track to experience a 3°C warming, which goes beyond the target set by the Paris agreement to limit global warming to 1.5°C. This projection has significant ramifications for the worldwide market and the well-being of the Southeast Asian population.
According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), adopting technologies has the potential to reduce global emissions by two-thirds, which highlights the need to accelerate the development and deployment of climate innovation technologies.
Thus, to encourage more climate innovations and entrepreneurship, East Ventures and Temasek Foundation presented Indonesia’s largest climate innovations tech platform of the year, Climate Impact Innovations Challenge (CIIC) early this March. In the launching event of CIIC, we featured a panel discussion, titled “From idea to impact: Navigating the climate innovation landscape” with Southeast Asian climate innovators representing the four tracks of the CIIC 2023: Renewable Energy, Food & Agriculture, Mobility, and Ocean.
The speakers are: Philip Effendy, Co-Founder and VP of Operations of Xurya, Arden Lim, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of ARIA, Ernest Layman, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Rekosistem, and Farid Naufal Aslam, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Aruna.
For entrepreneurs who are keen to solve climate issues, here are three main questions that you should take note of – Why? What? and How?
