Responsible Innovation: Protecting our Planet with Technology


Emerging technologies have the potential to transform and revolutionize environmental protection as we know it.

Strategic leaps in global connectivity as well as the fast processing of data and creation of solutions in energy, project design, transportation and more will be the key pieces in protecting our earth. From investing in smarter, green tech practices to ensuring corporate responsibility through policy, the hunt for new ways to reduce humanity’s carbon footprint is crucial in its advancement.

As a new administration takes charge, how can we leverage this moment of opportunity? How can we continue to invest in emerging technologies that will revolutionize environmental protection? And how can policymaking keep pace to ensure technology is leading the way in the conservation of our Earth?

The Hill will gather leading environmentalists, green tech experts and policymakers for a comprehensive discussion on how the United States can lead environmental efforts through its advancing technology.
