Fighting Climate Change with Data

May 17, 2022

Climate Change: The Existential Crisis of Our Time

Climate change is an acute crisis of our time — innovations in data are essential to solve it. Public and private data sets, and the digital tools and financial incentives they make possible, are critical to reducing Canada’s carbon emissions. 

Canada’s business and government leaders are establishing data protocols to accurately and transparently monitor and reduce emissions — accelerating the path to Net Zero while building a prosperous green economy. 

A particularly exciting opportunity in this sector is the use of new climate data tools to drive sustainability in real estate and the built world. This session will explore the new protocols emerging to link financial tools with sustainability targets that can accelerate decarbonization of the built world. 

On May 17, CityAge brought together industry leaders for The Data Effect to explore how data will help us fight climate change and meet ESG goals, starting now
