“Innovation” has become a much-used — some would say much-abused — buzzword in business, and no less so in sustainability. The online literature is chock-full of articles and reports on sustainability and innovation (sometimes awkwardly converged into “sustainable innovation”) from Harvard Business Review to, well, GreenBiz. There’s a Sustainable Innovation Forum at each and every COP climate conference.
The convergence of sustainability and innovation will be center stage at this week’s VERGE 18 conference and expo. The event focuses on new and novel technologies to address clean energy, transportation and mobility, the circular economy, food and water, the built environment and more.
Ultimately, all of it gets lumped into a single-word meme: #Innovation.
