London, 15th June 2023 

Earlier this week, Laurence Kemball-Cook, CEO and Founder of Pavegen, had an insightful conversation with BBC News at the launch of London Tech Week 2023. During the interview, Laurence emphasised the urgent need for both government and private sector companies to prioritise investments in technology and projects that address the pressing issues of climate change and the 2030 Global Goals, particularly in the context of smart city developments and climate technologies. 

While the advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) have garnered significant attention and discussion throughout London Tech Week, it is crucial for us to not overlook the critical issue of climate change. As the city of London, known for its innovation and home to numerous unicorn companies, we have immense potential to drive clean tech solutions and tackle climate change head-on. Pavegen takes pride in being a part of this vibrant ecosystem, where sustainable innovation can thrive. 

The Importance of Climate Technologies in Urban Development

At Pavegen, we have always believed in the transformative power of technology to bring about positive change, and we remain committed to leveraging our expertise to address environmental challenges. Our kinetic energy solutions pave the way for smarter, greener cities by harnessing the energy generated from footsteps and converting it into renewable energy. By integrating our technology into high-footfall urban environments, we empower individuals to actively contribute to the transition towards a more sustainable future. 

While it is essential to explore the latest trends in blockchain, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, we must never forget our responsibility to prioritise and safeguard the environment. Climate change poses an existential threat that requires immediate action, and as a community, we have a duty to ensure that our technological advancements align with the long-term well-being of our planet. 

Using The Momentum Of London Tech Week To Power Change

The momentum generated during London Tech Week can serve as a catalyst for championing sustainable innovation. Together, we can strike the right balance between technological progress and environmental preservation. By fostering collaboration, sharing knowledge, and supporting one another, we can create a brighter and greener future for generations to come. 

By leveraging the collective expertise and resources of various stakeholders, we can foster a collaborative environment that encourages the development and implementation of sustainable solutions across industries. By sharing knowledge, best practices, and lessons learned, we can accelerate the adoption of eco-friendly technologies and practices, leading to a significant reduction in our carbon footprint and mitigating the effects of climate change. Moreover, by supporting one another, whether through partnerships, investments, or regulatory frameworks, we can create an ecosystem that nurtures and rewards sustainable innovation, paving the way for a brighter and greener future for generations to come. Through this collective effort, we can inspire and empower individuals, organisations, and governments to embrace sustainability as a core value and drive positive change worldwide.
