TODAY: Governor Gavin Newsom to Deliver Remarks at Planet’s Explore 19 Conference


SAN FRANCISCO — Governor Gavin Newsom will deliver remarks at Planet’s Explore 19 Conference in San Francisco today and discuss how innovations in tech can help in the fight against climate change.

In September at Climate Week NYC, California announced a partnership with Planet and United Nations Special Envoy for Climate Action Michael R. Bloomberg called “Satellites for Climate Action,” an initiative that will bring together governments, philanthropists, environmental groups and technology companies to use satellite technologies to monitor greenhouse gas emissions and turn satellite data into actionable information.

California has one of the leading greenhouse gas reduction programs in the world, to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045, and a long history of finding innovative ways to reduce emissions while supporting a thriving economy. California will work with its partners to use satellite data to ensure that expected emissions reductions are happening, enforce existing regulations, and to identify cheaper and faster ways to achieve further reductions.

WHEN: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.

WHERE: Mission Bay Conference Center, Second Floor, Main Auditorium, 1675 Owens Street #251, San Francisco, CA 94158.

**Note: This event is open to credentialed media only. Reporters interested in attending must RSVP to press@planet.com by 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 15, 2019.​
