Inside the Innovation Zone at COP27 – Elected Officials to Protect America Participate in Climate Challenge Lab with Impact for SDGs

The latest climate science shows that the world must go beyond Net Zero to Climate Positive by 2040 (not 2050), and that investors must decarbonize even faster.”

— Ian Monroe

SHARM EL SHEIKH, EGYPT, Nov. 14, 2022 / — The 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC, or COP27, is the 27th United Nations climate change conference. COP27 builds on the outcomes of COP26 to deliver action on a range of issues critical to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, building resilience, and adapting to the inevitable impacts of climate change. As Heads of State, Ministers, and negotiators, as well as leading climate minds gather in the Egyptian coastal city of Sharm el-Sheikh for the largest annual meeting on climate action — innovative leaders come together at the Innovation Zone to discuss future solutions.

Elected Officials to Protect America along with Impact for SDGs, Etho Capital, FullCycle and Climate + Positive Investing Alliance will participate in the Innovation Zone Climate Challenge Lab on November 14, 2022 as part of the “27 Climate Challenges of COP27” across The COP campaign.

The high-level gathering of 30 selected global leaders will address the forum’s topic of investment through the lens of the UN SDGs with cross-sector discussions from industry experts to showcase the catalytic solutions they are providing.

Ian Monroe, CEO of Etho Capital and Lecturer at Stanford University joining The Climate Challenge Lab said:

“The latest climate science shows that the world needs to go beyond Net Zero to Climate Positive by 2040 (not 2050), and that investors need to decarbonize even faster. The good news is that most investors can already make Climate-positive portfolios today, and the necessary Scope 1-3 full portfolio climate accounting is easier than most investors expect. .”

The following are some of the keynote speakers at the Innovation Zone this week:

“Technology can make the process of applying for and deploying public funding more efficient and easier for communities. There is a gap in the market for technology-policy development to align state and local governments to leverage the capital available to fund some of the biggest and brightest solutions. I am funding the development tool of this gap in the market to enable large-scale deployment and to get finance where it needs to go. I am very pleased to announce that this will be done in partnership with Elected Officials to Protect America (EOPA), a non-partisan organization with over 20,000 legislators across the country. EOPA is supporting the Department of Energy in implementing the Inflation Reduction Act in partnership through our National Climate Task Force of elected officials, veterans and tribal leaders.”

Nisaa Jetha, Global Impact Strategist, hosts three Impact views for SDGs:

The emerging tech-tech space will truly shape the landscape as new forms of capital are unleashed. Technology can democratize access to public funding for applicants who want to advance climate solutions and deliver some of the key SDGs and why I am investing in this new innovation. Our next phase of growth will involve solutions across the sector, and I am delighted to be participating in the Climate Challenge Lab at COP27 within the Innovation Zone.”

Alex Cornell du Houx, President & Co-Founder of Elected Officials to Defend America, Marine Veteran and Former ME state legislator also spoke about his time at COP27 and the need for national responsibility:

“It’s great that at the Innovation Pavilion we are discussing innovations that will help all nations. Newly developed technologies will enable climate solutions to take effect in hard-to-reach places around the world. An exciting time of promise as we come together for a more secure future for our planet.”

Another solution highlighted by the Climate Change Lab is Stephan Nicoleau, FullCycle’s Managing Director who pioneered the need for deep methane mitigation. Nicoleau said:

“The science is clear – we need to implement deep methane mitigation and real assets that can reduce methane emissions across key sectors – including oil and gas, agriculture and waste. The task now is to mobilize private capital and create sustainable pathways for private sector resources to be deployed in methane reduction solutions at scale, mapped to countries’ needs in a prioritized manner. We are leading a private sector consortium coming together to support the Global Methane Pledge and recommend upgrading its features to align more closely with global methane reduction.”
