How can Partners support innovative startups to scale up?
Corporate partners enable growth & Innovation
Encouraging collaboration between corporates and startups stands as a strategic move for those seeking to foster innovation. That counts all the more in climate tech. Climate tech startups, with their speed and inventiveness, offer a reservoir of diverse ideas and groundbreaking technologies that help to translate corporate responsibility into action and shift the big levers of the corporate world towards Net Zero.
The ecosystem is key to helping entrepreneurs flourish in an environment that fosters opportunity amid uncertainty. Corporates and startups working together can be a very difficult space, but a place where magic can happen.”

Accelerating technologies for net zero and inspiring our people
As part of Arm’s climate crisis response, we have committed to reducing our own emissions and to supporting innovation in climate solutions – especially in tech-enabled carbon removal solutions. We are delighted to be partnering with Carbon13 to support this aim. Through this partnership we are also surfacing examples within the business of tech innovation for net zero, as well as enabling some of our people to volunteer their time to support Carbon13 ventures with their specialist skills and expertise.
“In 2020 Arm announced its commitment to become net zero carbon by 2030 across all its emissions sources. We knew that new climate solutions were needed and that the pace and scale of innovation wasn’t where it needed to be. We have established a partnership with Carbon13 to support and highlight the role of disruption and collaboration in accelerating the innovation we’ll all need to reach net zero.”
