Announce the Sustainability Phase Agenda at TechCrunch Disrupt 2023

Keeping up with the latest trends and innovations in climate technology and sustainability — an area that involves every industry and city — is almost impossible. That’s why we created the Sustainability Stage at TechCrunch Disrupt 2023 and invited the brightest and best minds to share their insights.

The dedicated Sustainability Stage will cover the difficulties and challenges facing startups looking to raise capital, how cities transition to innovation to adapt to and mitigate climate change, as well as as progress and opportunity in the worlds of fast fashion, energy and sustainable agriculture.

We even got into beer.

Climate change is already affecting the way we live. As a result, a host of new startups are emerging with products and services aimed at mitigating climate and increasingly adapting. We’ve tapped venture capitalists with the pulse of climate technology and sustainability, as well as founders and industry experts. We also invited US mayors — who are at the heart of climate change, innovation and policy — to participate.

Here’s the first look at our agenda! TechCrunch Disrupt will be available at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from September 19 to 21.

There’s more to come, but we’re excited to share this first look at the Sustainability Phase!

Growing up in a new climate

Clear the air on Tech and City

with Mayor Andre Dickens of the City of Atlanta and Mayor Kate Gallego of the City of Phoenix

Technology moves fast, government develops slowly. Or so the story goes. In an age of climate change, city leaders are more eager than ever to embrace new technologies to promote sustainability. But that doesn’t mean everything is always rosy. We’ll hear from city leaders on the highs and lows of bringing sustainable technology to urban spaces.

Do something climate specific

with Rick Fox (NBA champion and CEO, Partanna)

Almost 10% of the world’s carbon pollution can be found right under our feet — literally. Cement is one of the least climate-friendly materials, but it’s also what the world depends on for housing, transportation and commerce. But that’s not necessarily the case. Three-time NBA champion Rick Fox will join us to discuss his carbon negative concrete start-up Partanna, the role of teamwork in startups and his desire to make a mark concave in his climate change.

Is sustainable fast fashion possible?

with Jim Ajioka (Colorifix), Elizabeth Esponnette (Unspun) and Julie Willoughby (Circ)

The fast fashion giants know the green cleaning game like the back of their hand, but the industry’s actions speak louder than words. As brands monetize the microtrends powered by TikTok and accept the diminishing lifespans of their products, their reliance on fossil fuel ingredients, toxic dyes, and industrial exploitation. cause harm to people and the planet. Can the industry solve its problems while still attracting customers with the latest designs and extremely low prices? Join us as three pioneers ponder the future of cyclical fashion, sustainable materials, and the role they believe emerging technology will play in decarbonizing the industry.

Advantages (and disadvantages) of cultured meat

with Uma Valeti (Upside Food)

In our fight to reduce our carbon footprint, there is perhaps no greater challenge than food, or more specifically, meat. Livestock, processing and distribution of livestock, chicken and pork products are among the largest contributors to greenhouse gases. So what if we grow it in the lab? Uma Valeti, founder and CEO of Upside Foods, wants to do just that. Head to Stages of Sustainability to learn what obstacles stand in the way of Valeti — including literally getting consumers to take a bite — and whether this nascent industry stands a chance.

Beer, lab meat and climate chaos

with Charles Denby (Berkeley Yeast), Matthew Walker (S2G Ventures)

As climate awareness and anxiety grows, so does the rise of loosely defined terms such as regenerative and sustainable agriculture. However, the most important thing is relatively simple. We know that business as usual doesn’t work in almost every industry as the climate changes and that includes agriculture. Join startups like Berkeley Yeast and Future Meat backed by S2G; These and other emerging tech companies are developing new ways to deliver the same (or even better) foods and drinks that we love, ideally without harm. destroy the planet that produces those foods. Join us as agritech key players on the biggest obstacles and opportunities they see in the field, from the future of beer and room-grown meat experiment to how supply chains can evolve to meet the needs of environmentally conscious consumers.

Decentralization, Decarbonization, and Full Electrification — The Grid of Tomorrow

with Donnel Baird (BlocPower), Piyush Mathur (Odyssey Energy Solutions)

Electrify everything: It’s one of the top solutions to the climate problem. But doing that is not as easy as swapping the chimneys for solar and wind power. It will require an entirely new grid ready for new ways to generate and use energy. Join us to see how innovative startups are working to reinvent the grid from the bottom up.
