    How do we accelerate a green, resilient and just transition?

    A research and knowledge-hub for climate-tech

  • About OXCT

    Housed at Oxford Saïd Business School, OxCT exists to help close the knowledge, partnership, and resource gaps to accelerate the green and just transition. Our research focuses on best practices in supporting climate technology development, as well as ensuring that solutions scale efficiently and equitably. Our flagship study - The Climate Tech Opportunity - conducted in partnership with the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, assesses the key trends and challenges influencing climate tech. It also pools insights directly from leading climate tech experts from around the world, including vulnerable countries and communities. We plan to deepen our research in hopes of overcoming information asymmetries, enabling new collaborations, and facilitating capacity building for practitioners in the climate-tech space.


    “The cost of low-carbon technology (LCT) is decreasing while investment, trade, and innovation in this sector are on the rise. But the benefits of that progress have largely eluded the world’s poorest countries, which play a minuscule role in low-carbon technology markets as buyers, sellers or innovators—despite being the most vulnerable to extreme weather events, flooding, damage to infrastructure, and habitat loss.”
