About this event

Humanity is racing towards an irreversible climate tragedy, but there is good news: many of the solutions we need already exist — and have been developed right here in Canada.

Mission from MaRS is an ambitious technology adoption program addressing the climate crisis. Building on the successes of the Climate Impact Challenge, Mission from MaRS: Net Zero is a new series of initiatives helping ventures overcome the obstacles of scaling the adoption of their technologies.

As the largest purchasers of goods and services, governments at every level have significant influence on innovation adoption. The first Mission on public procurement will focus on strategies to remove barriers to public procurement, help ventures better navigate the process and successfully sell to governments.

Join us Thursday, December 8 as we reveal the Climate Champions selected for the public procurement-focused mission along with key stakeholders that will enable their success.
