The research team relied on the most credible and publicly available sources to provide climate tech/net-zero expert networks. Publicly available information was limited that would help us determine the number of climate tech/net-zero expert networks that exist or assist us in triangulating data. As requested, we focused on providing information about climate tech/net-zero expert networks, including a short description and a link to these companies. We relied on credible sources such as Food Tank, which lists organizations helping solve the climate crisis, and the Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN).
