MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif., November 14, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gloria Nelund, CEO and Founder of TriLinc Global, has joined AI for Planet Advisory Board, a newly formed neutral, international alliance to be led by Startup Inside, along with Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and BCG GAMMA as knowledge partners. “We are excited to be part of this new global alliance that will help AI realize its potential to support large-scale climate change efforts and establish a global platform to identify key uses of AI. AI in the fight against climate change,” said Ms. Nelund.
Climate change has, and will continue to have, major impacts on environmental, social and economic systems around the world. Mitigation efforts, including reaching net zero emissions by 2050, are needed to limit global temperature rise and its impacts. Adaptation and resilience efforts are also a key global priority, as they can help minimize damage resulting from high global temperatures – resulting in the preservation not only of the environment, but also of human lives and livelihoods. Applying AI to climate challenges offers a critical way to bring about meaningful change at this critical time. AI for the Planet will build a multidisciplinary and diverse coalition of AI and climate leaders to drive concrete and measurable action. This alliance will tackle these challenges by establishing a global platform to identify the main uses of AI in the fight against climate change, select and champion the most promising climate AI solutions and ensure that these solutions can have a large-scale impact. Other collaborators of the alliance are the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the Office of Information and Communication (OICT) of the United Nations and the AI for Good Foundation.
“The potential of AI to mitigate climate change is enormous. We want to find the best AI solutions for climate change in the world and accelerate their adoption and scale in the North and the South,” said Damien Gromier, Founder of AI for the Planet and CEO . & co-founder of Startup Inside.
Over the next 12 months, AI for the Planet’s plans include publishing a report analyzing the use cases of AI in climate change, launching a call for solutions to identify and support promising innovations in climate AI, and the organization of a global conference to stimulate action.
