The Role of AI & Digital Twins in Decarbonising Construction
This webinar was hosted by Carbon Re together with the UNESCO International Research Centre on Artificial Intelligence (IRCAI), in association with London Climate Action Week and with the generous support of HumaneAI-Net.
According to the Climate Change Committee, greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing and construction were 66 MtCO2 in 2018 - 12% of the UK total. If there is a lesson from the pandemic it is that we need to multiply our efforts to mitigate climate change, if we are to avoid economic, social and political disaster. Yet, we can’t achieve net zero goals without decarbonizing manufacturing and construction. We need to tackle the hard problems today. This means industrial policies, R&D funding, business support and innovation that accelerate the zero-carbon transition needed to address these challenges.
