"Can the Fourth Industrial Revolution and AI save the planet?"

A talk by Ben Combes*, Assistant Director, Sustainability and Climate Change, at PwC


Scientists have identified that four of the nine Earth processes and systems – climate change, loss of biosphere integrity, land-system change and altered cycles in the globe’s chemistry – have now crossed “boundary levels”. While these challenges are urgent and unprecedented, they coincide with an era of unparalleled innovation and technological change – the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). Talking through research, insights and interviews on his work at PwC and in collaboration with the World Economic Forum. Ben will explore the relevance to business and the challenges and opportunities this will bring, how markets will develop and how consumer preferences might evolve. He will also set out how the 4IR and, in particular, Artificial Intelligence (AI) can help solve environmental challenges, from climate change to biodiversity.
