Can Leaders Leverage Digital Technology to Drive Environmental Sustainability?

We are well aware that in recent times, climate change has impacted the economic, social, and environmental systems across the planet, and unfortunately, its consequences are expected to continue in the future.

It has been witnessed that cities in the United States, Philippines, China, and Madagascar are facing warmer, drier, and wetter climates, resulting in natural hazards; these extreme weather events have affected 145,000 human fatalities across cities, as they invite seasonal diseases, drought, famine, and even death.

Therefore, with these adversities in mind, meteorological departments and governments across the country have started taking advantage of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) that have the potential to protect the environment.

Air Quality Monitoring

The precise real-time air quality assessments are based on data analysis from smart sensors, enabling scientists and engineers to take prompt action in areas with high pollution levels. The ML models also come in handy for forecasting potential pollution levels based on various factors and, thus, taking proactive actions to mitigate air pollution.

Industry Leaders’ Perspectives on AI and Environment Sustainability

When it comes to introducing AI-driven sustainability initiatives, leaders should ensure that all stakeholders are on board with the idea and must collaborate and think about this issue as a collective thing.

Having a long-term vision is essential, as companies sometimes focus on immediate benefits that will help increase profit in the next quarter. But when companies start incorporating environmental, societal, and financial variables, it will help C-suites get a clear picture and give thought to the long-term implementation of sustainability and technology.

For any environmental and sustainability initiative, the C-suites must have a strategic vision with robust leadership and stakeholders’ commitment to developing a more resistant and structured plan that will help in creating sustainable business with improved outcomes for the customer and society.

The role of AI in environmental sustainability will have a wide role in the future, as it will not only involve handling and analyzing more complex datasets but also enabling environmental prediction.

Similarly, the integration of smart technology with the Internet of Things (IoT) will allow organizations to collect data and focus on enhancing environmental monitoring and resource management. To accelerate the development and adoption of AI-based solutions for environmental challenges, enterprises need to collaborate with every government, business, academia, and NGO at both local and global levels, as their expertise and knowledge will help in fostering innovation and investing smartly in tailored environmental applications.

Ultimately, the implementation of AI in addressing environmental challenges is just one part of the effort to transition to a more sustainable society.
