Partnership Between A.T. Kearney and Al Gore’s Surveillance Satellites to ‘Supercharge’ ESG Efforts

In June, A.T. Kearney, Inc. — a global management consulting firm — announced a partnership with Al Gore’s nonprofit, Climate TRACE. Along with its various management consulting services, A.T. Kearney boasts about its role in helping organizations “establish and implement decarbonization strategies.” This new partnership, according to A.T. Kearney, will use data gathered by Gore’s fleet of 300 satellites to help clients “better understand and act on their [greenhouse gas] emissions footprint.”

Climate TRACE is a nonprofit created with the sole purpose of tracking and identifying the sources of greenhouse gas emissions around the world. At the World Economic Forum’s 2022 Davos conference, climate activist and former Vice President Al Gore unveiled plans for the Climate Tracking Realtime Atmospheric Carbon Emissions project. “It’s a coalition of artificial intelligence, technology companies, NGOs, and universities, using data from 300 existing satellites from multiple countries, ground, sea, and air-based sensors and internet data streams to use machine learning to create algorithms for every single subsector of the economy,” said Gore during the Davos panel on greenwashing.

On its website, Climate TRACE reports the use of 300 satellites, 11,000 sensors, and help from more than 100 collaborating organizations to generate 60 terabytes of data. This data is analyzed using artificial intelligence to create a comprehensive global map of carbon dioxide emissions.

A.T. Kearney reports the partnership with Climate TRACE can help supercharge ESG efforts. “ESG programs are only as good as the data behind them,” warns A.T. Kearney in its article discussing the partnership. By utilizing the data from Climate TRACE, A.T. Kearney can help its clients understand the full picture of their carbon footprint and better navigate the “reporting requirements from governments and ESG investors.”
