Advancing Technology for a Sustainable Planet

Tue July 26th 2022, 9:00am - 12:30pm
Event Sponsor
Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI)

Achieving a sustainable, net-zero-emissions future will require the acceleration of technology development and deployment. Measurable and meaningful ESG (environmental, social, and governance) metrics, together with other private and public-sector initiatives and policies, will help advance technology for sustainability.

Hosted by IEEE in partnership with the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence and the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, this event will explore regulatory, policy, and financial frameworks critical to advancing technology which prioritizes people, planet, and purpose-driven progress. Keynotes and panels will be followed by workshop writing sessions, led by the IEEE Planet Positive 2030 Community. 

The writing sessions will work to progress a Compendium document, Strong Sustainability by Design, which will address various climate change issues with recommendations and practical approaches. Keynotes and sessions will be livestreamed on the HAI Website. If you would like to contribute to the writing sessions via zoom, you must sign up for a committee before July 18.
