Making existing vehicles CO2-free with hydrogen

Speaker: Karl Wagner
H2Century is the first available Hydrogen conversion add-on kit for fossil fuel cars in the world. It offers existing car owners the unique ability to keep their existing vehicles, and convert them to being carbon neutral, aiming to minimise the impacts of two major issues associated with environmental footprints: both transportation, and waste. As a society it is becoming scientifically proven we have no time to waste in utilising innovation today in trying to overreach on zero emissions targets. Speakers at a UN General Assembly in March 2019 said we have only 11 years left to prevent irreversible damage from climate change. Learn how you can become part of a Hydrogen century from founder and CEO Karl Wagner who invented this ground-breaking technology and how he intends to bring this to market.

Focusing on Returns

Speaker: Gavin Oldham OBE
The big difference between now and 10-15 years ago in sustainable investment is that the economics for a green revolution are starting to make sense.
