Axis Innovation’s Decarbonization Scouting is a unique service to help global corporations achieve decarbonization goals faster through successful startup collaboration. 

Decarbonization is one of the most important and pressing issues for companies today. According to PwC research, the world needs to decarbonize seven times as fast as the current rate to limit warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial averages. The need for innovative ways to mitigate, measure and adapt to climate change has become more urgent due to regulation and shareholder requirements, and the need for climate technology continues to rise. 

Why Climate Tech Startups?

Companies need a multi pronged strategy to build institutional competence and achieve their decarbonization goals. One of these is open innovation - working with technology startups for short, medium, and long-term innovation goals. 


Technology innovation and climate tech startups will play a critical role in bending the decarbonisation arc. Today, there are thousands of climate tech startups and companies globally, with hundreds created every year and continuing to rise. Total venture and private equity investments in climate tech reached nearly $1 Trillion in 2022.
