PwC’s Net Zero Future50 report is live
The CEE edition of PwC’s Net Zero Future50 report produced in partnership with Wolves Summit was launched during the event and is live now. Discover the state of climate tech investment in CEE and meet 50 innovative start-ups which can contribute to net zero transition in the region.
“In Central and Eastern Europe, sustainability goals have also become security goals. We have even more motivation to work toward the goals set out by the European Green Deal: reducing CO2 emissions by at least 55% by 2030, and achieving climate neutrality by 2050. Net zero obligations and the need for energy independence and security will not be met by business as usual. One of the most exciting ways of making progress is to scale up the impact of climate tech solutions – and to match investor funding with climate tech entrepreneurs.” said Agnieszka Gajewska, ESG Leader at PwC CEE.
