Ed Sewell, CEO and Founder, Velocity AI
The idea of a “smart city” has grown from a novel idea into an innovative way to solve many environmental, social and governance (ESG) problems around the world. During this webinar, we will discuss how AI can help accelerate return on investment (ROI) in ESG investments. We will also examine use cases that have enabled diverse stakeholders to create value for customers. Research has shown, a common barrier to solving problems linked to sustainability is a lack of private sector funding. Funding is needed to invest in critical infrastructure and care for basic human needs everyone has in common - for example - access to clean energy, healthcare and housing to name a few. To that end, private sector collaboration in smart city initiatives require a simple, market - based approach with incentives aligned to profitability. This is the clear path to achieve our shared goal of sustainability, global scale and impact.
