But, what is "climate tech"?

Climate tech is a growing category of technologies that help to mitigate or adapt to the increasing impacts of climate change. While many are familiar with “clean tech”, climate tech is a broader category of sustainability-geared technologies broken up into sub-categories that span a wide range of markets and models. While it can be overwhelming to try to wrap your head around what constitutes “climate tech” for the first time, there are some simple ways to understand it.
