Energy waste is happening all around us, and it’s contributing to climate change. Yet fighting this invisible foe is near impossible – unless we make the invisible visible. Digital innovation, combined with a shift to more electrification, holds the key to tackling climate change, unlocking the ability to see and measure our impact, so we can recognise and reduce it.
Ironically, digital adoption is also one of the biggest barriers to action. Confusion around what to invest in has caused many to delay decisions and wait for a ‘miracle cure’. This paralysis is part of the problem.
Climate change is an imminent U.S. financial risk. According to a study conducted by the National Bureau of Economic Research, continued temperature increases and failure to drastically cut emissions could result in a 10.5% cut in U.S. GDP alone by 2100.
