UpLink, a community spearheaded by the World Economic Forum (WEF) to empower early-stage entrepreneurs with impactful solutions, announced a suite of initiatives for a wide array of sectors crucial for sustainability, ranging from circular carbon economy solutions to regenerative blue economy endeavors and the integration of quantum computing technology.[1]

The initiatives include the Circular Carbon Economy Partnership forged with the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Economy and Planning and Ministry of Energy to spearhead the carbon reduction strategies on a global scale. This collaboration seeks to harness technologies to not only reduce carbon emissions but also to repurpose carbon as a valuable resource.

Furthermore, the Sustainable Mining Challenge, launched in partnership with Prospect Innovation, seeks to support the mining sector by identifying and scaling innovations that reduce its environmental footprint while meeting the surging demand for minerals critical to clean energy technologies. Over the next three years, this collaboration aims to nurture and scale up 40–50 solutions, fostering sustainability and community prosperity within the mining industry.

In tandem, the Regenerative Blue Economy Challenge, a joint effort with Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Economy and Planning and the WAVE platform, will safeguard marine ecosystems while promoting sustainable economic growth to unlock the untapped potential of the blue economy, ensuring a healthy ocean for future generations.

Additionally, UpLink announced a collaboration with C4IR Saudi Arabia to harness the power of quantum computing in addressing sustainability challenges, including climate action and economic development, to identify scalable quantum technologies that can expedite progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly within Saudi Arabia.
