Envision Virgin Racing is to host one of its now renowned climate change-focused Innovation Summits ahead of the Paris E-Prix.

Held at Châteauform, just a stone’s throw from the Formula E race in Paris, the thought leadership event will bring together a host of prominent business leaders and sustainability experts to discuss why urgent and unprecedented changes are needed to restrict global warming to a maximum of 1.5°C.

To be hosted by broadcast journalist Andrew Wilson, the team’s Innovation Summit is one of a series held by Envision Virgin Racing in conjunction with its Race Against Climate Change initiative, a programme launched by Sir Richard Branson in 2017 which aims to accelerate the energy transition and help the world achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Accord.

Indeed, the team – together with its partners – has earned a reputation as the leading Formula E team for sustainability, using its independent status to address the wider energy transition topic beyond just the e-mobility element.

Further details of the event’s panellists will be revealed via the team’s social media channels and website, as well as full details on how people can watch the entire event live on Facebook.

The event takes place on Saturday 27th April from 8:30am in the UK and 9:30am across Europe.
