At Greater Than we’re passionate about the environment. That’s why we’re so happy to help raise awareness of Earth Day 2023, taking place on April 22. Our contribution to this discussion is to highlight the value of artificial intelligence (AI) in helping to reduce driver impact on the environment. As part of this, we are sharing five things you might not know about our Climate Impact Score.
Earth Day is an annual event that honors the achievements of the environmental movement and raises awareness of the need to protect Earth’s natural resources for future generations. This year’s Earth Day theme is focused on engaging individuals, governments, institutions, and businesses to recognize our collective responsibility in accelerating the transition to an equitable, prosperous green economy for all.
Growing out of the first Earth Day in 1970, EARTHDAY.ORG is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 150,000 partners in over 192 countries to drive positive action for our planet.
Close to a quarter of energy-related global greenhouse gas emissions come from transportation. Driving therefore plays a significant role in climate impact. It’s important for us to consider how we can reduce climate change by transport.
Globally, many strategies have been introduced to reduce the amount of damage that transport does to the environment. One example is the push to replace internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles with electric vehicles. Another is to reduce speed limits, particularly in urban areas. However, the most powerful action we can take today is to focus on driver attitude.
Greater Than’s Climate Impact Score identifies the correlation between driver attitude and energy consumption. The AI identifies a driver’s climate impact, just by analyzing GPS data. This empowers drivers to take responsibility for their own climate impact. It also empowers organizations to take a lead in guiding climate action.
