Inside Green Innovation: Progress Report

12th December 2022, 5:22 pm

What can patent data reveal about global progress in green innovation, and what might be achieved in years to come?

Our annual report analyses patent filings across several areas of innovation, including food production, renewable energy, and materials and recycling.

This data-driven report gets behind the rhetoric, to shed light on the state of progress in the development of green technologies. How close are we to finding the technological solutions that will be so important for achieving sustainability? Where, and by whom, are these innovations being developed?

We have attempted to leverage our experience of working with technology experts and the patent system, and to navigate these resources to produce data driven analysis, and to try to pull back the curtain on the progress of green technologies.

Our latest report was released in November 2022.

In November 2021, we published the first edition of our report, examining global progress in green innovation, and what it might mean to countries, commerce and the planet.

Such was the response to the report that – this year – we’ve both broadened and refined its scope: along with revisiting the innovation areas of plastics, batteries and food production, the Inside Green Innovation: Progress Report 2022 includes analyses of technological developments in carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS), hydrogen, heat pumps and solar energy, all of which are grouped into the categories of food, materials, and energy.

  • Energy (hydrogen, solar, batteries, heat pumps)
  • Materials (bioplastics, plastics recycling and carbon capture)
  • Food (alternative protein)
