Welcome to SDGLabs.ai – Scientists for Sustainability
SDGLabs.ai is a consortium of scientists aiming to pool their interdisciplinary capabilities to support the development and achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Its capabilities reach from Financial Data Science and Machine Learning to SDG domain focused competencies in Climate Transition Engineering, Gender, or Consumer Protection research. Its mission is inspired by Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors without Borders as it emphasises impartiality and financial independence in its analyses and interpretations, thereby avoiding corporate capture and political bias. SDGLabs.ai has worked on projects inter alia with the United Nations (Department for Economic and Social Affairs), the International Finance Corporation, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research (Mistra), the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF), the German Environmental Agency (UBA), the German Federal Environmental Foundation (DBU) and the German Ministry for Justice and Consumer Protection (BMJV).
