We are of the opinion that combating climate change presents a crucial collective hurdle and for thirty years, we have been utilizing technology to hasten meaningful action. While we acknowledge that digital technology by itself will not resolve the climate crisis, we can already witness the tremendous potential it possesses to aid in accelerating action on sustainability and climate while simultaneously empowering economic growth.

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Digital Sprinters sustainability report, spearheaded by Deloitte and conducted by Google. This fresh report delves into how digital solutions such as AI can assist in decreasing global emissions to mitigate the rate of climate change and also aid individuals in adapting to a shifting planet. From exploring a broad array of digital technologies including IoT, AI, Cloud platforms, to remote satellite measurement, the report investigates how digital tools can hasten decarbonization across various high-emitting sectors and facilitate climate-resilience, especially in emerging and developing markets.

The report underscores key possibilities for digital technologies to lower emissions by 2030 through strategies such as AI-powered grid optimization and route planning. It also examines methods to promote adaptation and resilience through early warning systems and robust infrastructure. With more than 3.6 billion individuals residing in regions highly prone to climate change effects, effective crisis response and robust infrastructure emerge as crucial pillars of policymaking. Digital tools likewise facilitate precise climate impact prediction through data gathering and analysis, laying the groundwork for planning and response tactics. The integration of AI and IoT technologies enriches our knowledge base, enhances decision-making, and boosts automation and innovation.

Public policy plays a pivotal role in facilitating the implementation of these solutions.

  • Infrastructure: policy actions that broaden internet accessibility and ensure data availability can facilitate the environment for digital solutions to reach individuals, while public backing for satellite and IoT deployment can improve the data collection essential for effective climate solutions.
  • People: advancing digital education can help foster a workforce knowledgeable in both climate science and digital technology.
  • Technological innovation: establishing innovation centers to nurture new concepts, backing early-stage digital enterprises, and integrating digital climate solutions in municipalities can assist in enhancing government endeavors.
  • Enabling policies: guidelines that set up structures for climate-related information – for example, how we classify the environmental impact of products – can provide consumers with the data required to make sustainable decisions. Digital tools can aid in enforcing sustainability regulations, promoting sustainable resource utilization, and nurturing well-working climate-related markets.

As we gaze into the future, we have never been more enthusiastic about the potential that digital solutions hold to expedite action on climate. For more insights, you can access our most recent report.
