Society is going through one of its biggest challenges since the beginning of civilization: climate change. From extreme weather events to migration, the climate crisis is impacting multiple sectors in society and it has become clear that many businesses will need to redesign their strategies to keep up to date with the sustainable development goals agenda. In this talk, we will initially discuss how the climate crisis is affecting many sectors in different parts of the world. The second part of the talk will be dedicated to discussing how artificial intelligence can enter this scenario as an innovative tool to create sustainable business more suitable to 21st century needs. In particular, we will discuss the Climate Mitigation Assistant that is an open-source initiative developed by the AI Wonder girls team, with the goal to bring more awareness to the problem.
