The next 50 years of environmental protection will not look like the first 50—they will be driven by technology as much as by regulation. Technology is radically reshaping how things are powered, made, and moved. It is allowing us to observe environmental conditions in real time, and to adjust how we produce goods and services to reduce waste and pollution.  Technology is not a panacea, but it is an instrument of rapid change, both in the world we live in and in the world of environmental law and protection.

Join ELI and leaders from some of the world’s most innovative companies in engaging with policymakers, lawmakers, technologists, and NGOs to explore environmental protection in an era of transformative technological change.  The inaugural GreenTech Conference will be held October 1-3, 2019, in Seattle.

Drones, artificial intelligence and advanced sensor networks are changing the way pollution and our natural resources are monitored and assessed. Learn about the role of emerging technologies in managing and reducing the environmental impacts of the manufacturing, food production, energy consumption and services sectors. Speakers will discuss the legal constraints and opportunities for the development and deployment of emerging technologies, including the societal costs and benefits. Speakers will also share their experiences and successes through case studies and demonstrations. The discussions will converge on the opportunities for cross-cutting technological applications with a focus on advancing a circular economy.
