TriLinc Global CEO and Founder Gloria Nelund Joins AI on Planet Advisory Board: New Alliance to Help Artificial Intelligence (AI) realize its potential to support climate change efforts at scale

Manhattan Beach, California – (Gloria Nylund, CEO and founder of TriLinc Global, has joined AI on the Planet Advisory Board, a newly formed impartial international coalition led by Startup Inside, with Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and BCG GAMMA as knowledge partners. “We are excited to be part of this new global alliance that will help AI realize its potential to support climate change efforts at scale as well as create a global platform to identify the top uses of AI in tackling climate change,” said Ms. Nylund.

Climate change is causing, and will continue to have, significant impacts on environmental, social and economic systems around the world. Mitigation efforts, including achieving net zero emissions by 2050, are needed to limit global warming and its repercussions. Adaptation and resilience efforts are also a critical global priority, as they can help reduce the damage from rising global temperatures – preserving not only the environment but human lives and livelihoods as well. Applying AI to climate challenges provides a vital way to bring about meaningful change at this critical moment. AI on Planet Earth will build a multidisciplinary and diverse coalition of AI and climate leaders to drive tangible and measurable actions. This alliance will address these challenges by creating a global platform to identify the top uses of AI in addressing climate change, selecting and supporting promising climate AI solutions, and ensuring that these solutions can achieve impact at scale. Other collaborators in the coalition are the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the United Nations Office for Information and Communications Technology (OICT) and the Artificial Intelligence for Good Foundation.

“The potential of AI to reduce climate change is enormous. We want to find the best AI climate change solutions around the world and accelerate their adoption and scale across the global North and Global South,” said Damien Grommer, founder of AI for the Planet and CEO and Co-founder of Startup Inside. .

Over the next 12 months, AI plans for the planet include publishing a report analyzing use cases of AI in climate change, launching a call for solutions to identify and support promising innovations in climate AI, and organizing a global conference to drive further action.
