The 2024 Climate Stocktake will feature an array of sessions, including keynote speeches, a fireside chat on the global energy transition and venture capital landscape post-COP28, and a main panel discussing Rhode Island’s substantial contributions to climate initiatives. The event culminates in a networking reception, offering unparalleled opportunities to connect with industry leaders and sustainability advocates.

As Rhode Island continues to lead the charge in climate action, this event promises to be a pivotal gathering, fostering discussions that will shape our world and push forward the boundaries of innovation and sustainability.
