Title: Making the right investments and technology choices to set Europe on course for climate neutrality by 2050.

Organizations are increasingly looking at new technologies to find the solutions they so desperately need to transition to a more sustainable future. This session looks at how the modern enterprise can identify the potential of artificial intelligence and other emerging digital technologies. What impact will these technologies have on the environment, and how will they disrupt business operations to accelerate climate action and steer a course towards cleaner growth?

Speakers: Jean-Baptiste PERRIN & Sara MOUBARAK from the Invent for Society team – with the collaboration of James HAYCOCK (Brand & Experience VP at Capgemini Invent UK – in charge of Idean)

The report seeks to understand how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can accelerate our response to climate change. The research approach draws on a range of tactics, from using climate models developed for estimating the impact of AI on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to a survey of over 400 sustainability executives and 400 business/tech executives from the automotive, industrial/process manufacturing, energy & utilities, and consumer products and retail industries.

James Robey

Global Head of Sustainability, Capgemini
I have led the Capgemini Group sustainability agenda since setting first carbon reduction targets in 2008. I am a long-term advocate of ambitious targets as a mechanism to drive innovation to ensure continual improvements. I manage our sustainability risks and drive our program to reduce environmental impacts in our most material areas. However the biggest difference we can make on this agenda, is the work we do with our clients. In 2018, we announced a new target to help our clients save 10 million carbon tonnes through leveraging technology. I regularly speak on this topic and engage directly with our clients.
