CGI to showcase metaverse innovation and sustainable technology solutions to fight climate change during COP27


CGI (NYSE: GIB) (TSX: GIB.A) will showcase its metaverse innovation at the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference, known as COP27, to demonstrate the role that enhanced virtual collaboration can play in the fight against climate change. Through interactive presentations, CGI will demonstrate how the metaverse can reduce the environmental impacts of travel and how the technology industry can partner with organizations in all sectors on their transition to net zero through sustainable technologies and practices.

The CGI COP27 metaverse showcase will highlight climate mitigation and adaptation solutions, natural capital accounting solutions, chemicals, and waste reduction solutions, and supply chain sustainability. In addition, CGI will share the investments it is making to address environmental impacts, including the Sustainability Exploration Environmental Data Science (SEEDS) program which aims to strengthen research to accelerate the development of technological solutions. This will allow organizations to access the tools needed to reduce biodiversity loss and emissions in line with temperature targets coming from the Paris Agreement.

Ambassador Achraf Ibrahim, assistant Foreign Minister, and COP27 general coordinator noted that COP27 is both an opportunity for action and a wake-up call, and thus needs to be widely inclusive. “The Egyptian Presidency with the help of CGI is providing this unique experience through the metaverse for participants in the conference as well as people from all over the world to participate directly in COP27 and help shape the action to preserve the environment for current and future generations,” Ibrahim said.

“Addressing our environmental impact and supporting the communities in which we operate is fundamental to our purpose,” said Tara McGeehan, CGI’s President of UK and Australia Operations and a member of the COP26 Business Leaders Group. “We know that to achieve global net zero goals, every organization must do their part to reduce and remove emissions—and technologies need to be leveraged and created to solve our carbon challenges.”

“Our commitment to sustainability is rooted in our core values, through projects delivered in collaboration with clients, and through operating practices, supply chain management, and community service engagement,” said George D. Schindler, CGI President & Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased to participate in COP27 to share the responsible practices and enabling technologies that can help organizations embed new ways of operating while harnessing the power of data to advance their climate change goals and achieve long-term business value.”

This year, COP27 will be hosted in Sharm El-SheikhEgypt, from November 6 through 18.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
