Framework Documents

Linking innovations with the potential to deliver net-zero emissions by 2050 to markets and investors require a new generation of frameworks. Frameworks that allow stakeholders to identify, assess and accelerate the uptake of disruptive innovations. The needs are constantly changing and currently three frameworks exists.

Become part of an innovative net-zero emissions agenda

Nominate Innovations

If you have or know of an innovation, where the existing or potential for reduced emissions in society has already been estimated please nominate them. We are also interested in innovations where the potential should be estimated. A thousand solutions that are either of strategic importance and/or with the potential to reduce at least 10 million tonnes CO2e/year by 2030 each will be presented at MI-5.

Nominate users of net-zero innovation frameworks

We are looking for financial companies, large and small solution providers, cities, incubators, etc., who are trying to identify, support, and/or accelerate the uptake of net-zero carbon innovations with the help of net-zero innovation frameworks. One hundred and fifty of these stakeholders will be presented at MI-5.

Improve the Framework

Please provide comments on the current Frameworks.


Below are publications from MI members and other stakeholders exploring the framework

Delivering on the Mission Innovation action plan 2018-2020

The Mission Innovation action plan 2018 – 2020 that was agreed at the 3rd Mission Innovation Ministerial Meeting the 27th of May 2018, identifies the need to ensure:

Increased private sector engagement and investment in energy innovation, particularly in key Innovation Challenges.

By developing:

A Framework for Assessing Avoided Emissions: Mission Innovation will launch a framework to support investors and funders to identify those system solutions and technologies that have significant ability or potential to contribute to reduced greenhouse gas emissions in society, so called, avoided emissions.

The full action plan is available on the Mission Innovation webpage. Sweden has been assigned to lead the work in collaboration with interested parties. Following is a first outline for the two-year project that is a continuation of the work leading up to the 3rd Mission Innovation Ministerial Meeting, MI-3.

About Mission Innovation

mission innovation logo

Launched at the Paris Climate Conference in 2015, Mission Innovation (MI) is a global initiative of 22 countries and the European Commission, on behalf of the European Union, seeking to dramatically accelerate global clean energy innovation and make clean energy widely affordable and reliable.

MI countries represent 60% of the world’s population, 70% of GDP, and 80% of government investment in clean energy research. MI countries are taking action to double their public investments in clean energy R&D over five years while encouraging collaboration among partner nations, sharing information, and coordinating with businesses and investors.
