As the world gears up for COP28, the United Nations climate change conference set to take place at the end of 2023 in Dubai, urgent action is needed to address the challenges posed by our changing climate. Israeli Climate Tech has the potential to make a big difference.

While Israel is globally recognized as an industry leader in fintech, cyber tech, and more, Israel’s climate tech sector has the potential to play a significant role in attaining sustainability goals. The country’s ecosystem of innovative startups, experienced investors, and supportive government policies is well-positioned to drive the development and adoption of innovative technologies to address climate challenges. Over the past decade, Israel has emerged as a major player in the climate tech space, with a thriving ecosystem of startups, investors, and support organizations dedicated to building innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. In this context, Israel’s growing climate tech ecosystem has a crucial role to play. 

To halt and reverse climate change, many countries are currently implementing initiatives aligned with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This set of 17 interconnected objectives outlined by the United Nations aims at creating a more equitable and sustainable world. Achieving these SDGs will require a global effort, with countries and organizations working together. This is where the regional alliance is crucial; creating deep ties at all levels paves the way for knowledge sharing, ecosystem building, and sourcing tech solutions to shared challenges. It is an opportunity to bring real impact to the people by generating employment opportunities and addressing water scarcity, energy, and food security.  

Alliances between Israel and regional partners have the potential to generate genuine, sustainable impact. And this is where PLANETech World comes in. 

PLANETech World is PLANETech’s annual conference, with 3,000 attendees, 130 exhibiting startups and 70+ speakers – all dedicated to growing the climate tech ecosystem. PLANETech World is attended by leaders from across the globe, startups developing disruptive climate technologies, investors investing in climate, policymakers, and academics – all joining forces to promote solutions to climate challenges.

Last year, during PLANETech 2022, 10 leading startups were selected to represent Israel as part of the PLANETech Delegation to COP27, which took place in November 2022, in Sharm El-Sheik.

PLANETech, the organizer of PLANETech World, is building a global network for climate tech innovators while promoting Israel as a world center for climate change technologies. PLANETech is building knowledge infrastructure, creating tools, connecting stakeholders, and implementing technologies. PLANETech is a nonprofit organization, a joint venture of the Israel Innovation Institute, Consensus Business Group, and the Israeli Ministry of Environmental Protection.

PLANETech World 2023 will take place on October 18, 2023, in Tel-Aviv.
