Inclusive Technological Solutions to Fight Climate Change
In the last decade, annual temperatures have reached record highs since 1880. 2022 was 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than NASA’s baseline period and global CO2 emissions rose to 36.8B tons, a 0.9% annual increase.
As our climate warms, unsustainable consumption and production patterns persist. Though the US is only 4% of the world population, it is responsible for over 12% of global waste.
Climate change disproportionately affects BIPOC and underserved communities, who lack the necessary resources to prepare for, cope with, and recover from its impacts. Heat waves, poor air quality, flooding, and more, exacerbate socioeconomic vulnerabilities, affecting critical areas such as health, housing, employment, and beyond.
Addressing these challenges to achieve environmental justice requires market-based solutions and innovative technology, such as digital products and cloud infrastructure. The subscription economy expedites technological adoption by transforming access and reducing financial barriers to environmental sustainability and climate-related solutions.
