About the Centre for AI & Climate 

The Centre for AI & Climate is an international organisation dedicated to accelerating the adoption of data science and AI to support faster action on climate change.

Our mission is to connect capabilities across technology, policy, and business to accelerate the application of data science and A.I. in climate solutions.


Recent advances in data science and AI offer opportunities to reduce emissions across a wide array of climate change challenges. These include rapid increases in energy systems efficiency, optimising transport networks, improving industrial processes, and real-time tracking of deforestation.


Solving climate breakdown will require a whole systems approach. This includes regulatory shifts as well as new technologies, but conversations in each space are often siloed. Other barriers include existing data sharing models, market incentive structures, finance bottlenecks and business models.


The Centre: The Centre for AI & Climate is a cross-functional facilitator and incubator that aims to connect capabilities across technology, policy and business. We facilitate cross-sector collaboration to remove barriers and build solutions that accelerate the world's transition to net zero.
