Founded in December 2015 at COP21 in Paris, Mission Innovation is a multilateral initiative that aims to achieve global clean energy technology performance breakthroughs and cost reductions. The 21 governments participating in Mission Innovation represent well over 80% of global public investment in clean energy research and development (R&D). Each government pledges to seek to double its clean energy innovation budget over the next five years.
