Member webinar: The Importance of Blockchain for Transformative Climate and Social Impact

The world is facing huge global challenges: Climate change, overpopulation, waste... We all know something needs to change, and yet face headwinds of siloed thinking, short-termism and misaligned incentives within the public and private sector. In this talk, Anthony Day, Blockchain Partner at IBM and Karen Dewar, Vice President IBM Cloud and Cognitive Technical Executive, UK & Ireland, will discuss how we can enable the 'triple bottom line' of People, Planet, Profit, and apply business network and ecosystem thinking to tackle climate and sustainability challenges; including a number of examples of real-world Blockchain and Distributed Ledger platforms that are making a difference today.
