Event: Jumpstarting Demand for Climate Solutions – The First Movers Coalition and US National Security

By Brigitte Hugh

On January 13, 2022, join the Center for Climate and Security as we host Jumpstarting Demand for Climate Solutions: The First Movers Coalition and US National Security, a panel discussion featuring representatives from the Department of Defense, Department of State, and industry leaders from 10-11 am EST. Click here to RSVP.

Context: In November 2021, the United States and the World Economic Forum launched the First Movers Coalition: as “a new platform for companies to harness their purchasing power and supply chains to create early markets for innovative clean energy technologies that are key for tackling the climate crisis.” 

The International Energy Agency forecasts that roughly half of the emissions reductions to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 must come from technologies that are not currently ready for commercial markets. The First Movers Coalition focuses on accelerating innovation in eight sectors where these technology needs are concentrated: steel, trucking, shipping, aviation, cement, aluminum, chemicals, and direct air capture.
