Environment & Social Impact

The Data Institute shares the commitment and mission of the Schmidt Family Foundation (TSFF) in supporting scientific innovation to advance environmental and social justice causes. Our partnership with TSFF allows us to greatly increase our work in the areas of social and economic justice, education, sustainability and climate change. TSFF is the global leader in supporting the advancement and understanding of how human activity impacts the environment. We work to advance original research in science, energy and the sustainability of the world’s biosphere.

With a problem solving data science approach, we engage with our industrial, governmental and nonprofit partners to flush out the key questions, design data driven approaches to these questions and then follow through with rigorous solutions.
