7 ways sensor technology can solve environmental problems

Humans are hard-wired to respond to threats we can sense. We’re not so good at responding to threats we can’t see, hear or touch: Pollution of air and water, toxic chemicals in products we buy, climate pollution.

Data has a long history of leading to environmental solutions. But sophisticated, inexpensive sensors are making the invisible visible, and have the potential to help solve some of our toughest environmental challenges.

We can reduce climate pollution. Find out how.

By 2020, we can turn the corner on climate change

Climate pollution can be stopped. And we have a plan to do it. Explore our reasonable and doable 10-point plan to reduce the pollution that is warming our planet. You’ll see that we already have the tools do it. But we need you. And the right partners, policy makers, and world leaders to put the following solutions into action.

The future within reach

EDF recently released Blueprint 2020: our five-year strategic plan to make progress in four main areas: Climate & Energy, Ecosystems, Oceans, and Health.

In each environmental area, we’ve set a series of strategic goals—some that will take years to complete, and others that we’re fighting to win right now—this year.
