Ecopia AI named a Top Project for Canada’s Clean50 2023

TORONTO, ONT., Oct. 6, 2022 – Ecopia AI (“Ecopia”) today announced that it was named to Canada’s Clean50 for its contribution to the low-carbon economy.

Every year, Clean50 recognizes leaders in Canadian sustainability for their innovations contributing to climate resiliency and the low-carbon economy. Ecopia’s initiative to create a high-precision 3D map of Canada with funding support from Sustainable Development Technology Canada was named a Top Project by the Clean50 committee.

To help reach this goal, Ecopia is leveraging artificial intelligence and geospatial data to develop 3D vector maps across the top 100 Canadian cities to aid in various sustainability efforts, such as rooftop solar installations, tree canopy coverage assessment, and enhanced flood mapping. These standardized maps will also enable provincial and federal stakeholders to better understand and benchmark progress toward net-zero 2050 targets - offering valuable insight for policy and funding programs.

“We are committed to doing our part to help develop stronger sustainability strategies for communities across Canada and around the world,” said Ecopia co-founder and president, Jon Lipinski. “We are proud that, by leveraging our technology, we can offer next-generation mapping data which can support real climate resilience action.”

As part of the initiative, Ecopia will be providing each of the top 100 cities a two-year license to the mapping data to help support immediate action toward climate resilience initiatives, such as:

  • Stormwater drainage and flood mapping
  • Green infrastructure planning and conservation efforts
  • Transportation engineering
  • Smart cities development
