As part of the continued partnership with CGI, Gaist will enter the metaverse for the very first time in support of the CGI COP27 metaverse showcase.
Taking place in Sharm-El-Sheikh, Egypt from 6th-18th November, the 27th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP27) marks the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
As partners of the COP27 presidency, CGI are leading the way in supporting technologies that contribute to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2030, hosting their very own metaverse showcase in parallel with the event. The showcase will highlight climate mitigation and adaptation solutions, natural capital accounting solutions, chemicals and waste reduction solutions, and supply chain sustainability and the range of investments made by CGI to address environmental impacts.
Selected as CGI Digital Climate Technology Ecosystem partners in 2021, Gaist exhibited at the Digital Climate Expo aligned to COP26 on 3 and 4 November in Glasgow, showcasing the role leading-edge data can play in enabling net zero objectives in highways infrastructure management.
Taking it one step further for COP27, Gaist are once again supporting CGI who have developed a unique metaverse emulating a full conference exhibition to highlight the role enhanced virtual collaboration can play in the fight against climate change.
As part of a community of innovative thought leaders in new technology and sustainability, Gaist Global Development Manager John Cartledge will be presenting (in avatar form) on delivering sustainable highways infrastructure management, exploring the vast opportunities for reducing global emissions in roads maintenance activity.
Taking place at 13:00 – 13:15 on Tuesday 15th November, CGI clients, partners and invitees will be able to enter the metaverse and explore the exhibition stands and presentations, alongside networking with other attendees as if it were taking place in the real world.
