The UN to use BI climate research


Category: Business News

The Earth4All model created in part by Jørgen Randers and Per Espen Stoknes will be used to map emissions, poverty, and inequality to help build a more sustainable future.

“Environmental and economic sustainability is the greatest challenge the world faces. It is important to be aware that solving the climate challenge is not enough, we also need to tackle rising economic inequality and poverty around the world if we are to achieve a better future. BI and other business schools play an important part in finding solutions that work,” says President of BI Norwegian Business School Karen Spens.

Earth4All is a group of scientists, economist and thinkers working on how to bring about the Giant Leap scenario needed to reach most of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The science behind their work is based on work carried out at BI Norwegian Business School.

“We presented our global results on SDG goal achievement to the top leadership of the United Nations as part of the UN Climate Week. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the Chair of the UN SDG Group Amina Mohammed were inspired by the report. They immediately requested us to deepen the analysis with a special focus on Africa and Latin America for UN’s Summit for the Future next year,” says Associate Professor at BI Per Espen Stoknes.
