Discover how AI Can Help Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions Recap - Aug 26, 2021

Reducing methane pollution is an essential pillar of Canada’s climate plan: a plan that includes a rigorous target of reducing emissions by 40% by 2025 with hefty fines for missing the mark.

With that deadline looming, government and industry are exploring new and innovative ways of tackling greenhouse gas pollution.

In this free webinar, we convened a panel of experts to discuss the future of methane emissions management and how technologies such as AI will impact the energy sector.
