The First Meeting of the IEEE Planet Positive 2030 Community: Advancing Technology for a Sustainable Planet

The Campaign

Planet Positive 2030 is a campaign created by a global, open community of experts led by IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization Advancing Technology for Humanity.

The Workshop at Stanford

Achieving a sustainable, net-zero emissions future will require the acceleration of technology development and deployment. Measurable and meaningful ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) metrics together with other private-and public-sector initiatives and policies will help advance technology for sustainability.

Hosted by IEEE in partnership with the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence and the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, this invitation-only event will explore regulatory, policy and financial frameworks critical to advancing technology which prioritizes people, planet and purpose-driven progress. Keynotes and panels will be followed by workshop writing sessions to provide all attendees the opportunity to contribute to the landmark Roadmap Compendium document, Strong Sustainability by Design, a pragmatic guide for businesses and governments alike.

Panel Topics 

Climate Change: Impacts, Adaptation, and Mitigation

Environmental AI Technology & ESG Regulations

The Value of an Equitable, Flourishing Planet
