This year’s theme is “Clean and green IP: searching, finding and beyond”.
Green technologies are gaining rapidly in importance in light of the ever increasing climate crisis. Over the last year, many of the planet's largest economies and companies have committed to eliminating their contribution to greenhouse gas emissions by the middle of this century, or soon thereafter. However, many of the technologies needed to cut greenhouse gas emissions are not yet fully mature. Recent developments in patenting trends provide welcome grounds for optimism. After a slump in patenting activity during the last decade, we have now seen three years of growth in low-carbon energy (LCE) patenting in many key emerging and cross-cutting technologies.
