Artificial Intelligence (AI) can help tackle climate change in multiple ways. There has been much focus on AI’s contribution to innovative adaptation technologies or its use in agriculture, by improving food systems and crop management, for example – but less emphasis on how AI could support investors to play their part in driving capital where it is most needed to accelerate the net zero transition. This webinar considered what climate-conscious investors might want from AI, ranging from climate analytics to predictive analysis, to assess investee entities’ preparedness to address climate risks and grab opportunities, along with the credibility of their net zero transition plans. We will also explore which stakeholders investors should engage with to unlock this potential. 

This webinar was organised by the LSE’s Transition Pathway Initiative Centre as part of AI UK Fringe by the Alan Turing Institute. Through a series of events between 4 – 29 March 2024, AI UK Fringe brings together leaders in academia from across the UK’s AI ecosystem to demonstrate, exhibit and update on their ground-breaking work.
