Advances in data science are key to tackling climate change, enabling climate scientists to more accurately forecast the impact of rising emissions, and business leaders to develop more effective climate mitigation and adaptation solutions. From advanced modeling to machine learning, data technologies are of increasing importance to investors concerned about climate change.
This conference — a joint effort by the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise at Columbia Business School and Columbia Climate School — brings together climate academics and business leaders to understand how new advances in research and practice can inform investments in specific sectors of the global economy. The forum explores topics that address the value and opportunity of using a science-based approach to inform and guide business and investment decisions.
Participants will include leaders from the investment community, a range of business sectors, and academia.
