En-ROADS for the Business Sector

Are you looking for a compelling way to talk about climate change with your CEO, C-suite, board of directors, or employees? Do you want to partner with a key customer on climate action, and need to brainstorm with them in an interactive and unique way? Want to take a look at climate risk to your current investment strategy, but not sure where to start?

En-ROADS, co-designed by Climate Interactive and MIT, runs on an ordinary laptop in a fraction of a second, offers an intuitive interface and is carefully grounded in thirty years of the best available science.

En-ROADS has different levers—including energy efficiency, transportation, renewable energy investment, carbon pricing, and more—that users can move to test their own assumptions about how taking action will impact climate change over time. The model can help unearth unique insights on how these actions can affect not just air quality and temperature rise, but also future cost of electricity, demand for natural gas and other energy sources, and global land use.

You can experience En-ROADS here. The model is particularly effective when used in one of Climate Interactive’s engaging group experiences:

A wide range of people and organizations have used En-ROADS, including HSBC Bank; PepsiCo; science educator Bill Nye, former Secretary of State John Kerry, members of the U.S. Congress, the UN Secretary-General’s Office, the Energy Transition Forum in London, the U.S. Climate Action Network, and many others. In February, participants at GreenBiz 2020 rated it a workshop using En-ROADS the best session of the conference.

User Testimonials

  • “En-ROADS lit my brain on fire….in one screen, the model communicates the urgency of the climate change threat, powerfully debunks cherished myths, confirmed the importance of current commitments and emphasizes how much more we have to do.”

    Roberta Barbieri PepsiCo VP, Global Water & Environmental Solutions
  • “The workshop is an eye-opener and an amazing way to organize my understanding of the climate solution landscape. The model’s interactive tool reinforces my understanding that not a single solution can solve the climate crisis, but it can only be mitigated through a massive combination of efforts in every single area. It also provides me with the toolkit to pitch and present how and why my workplace needs to take the most sustainable options available to us whenever there’s a choice.”

    Ha Vu Senior Software Engineer, Broadway Technology
  • “As a novice on climate change mitigation, the En-ROADS simulation was powerful. It helped answer the question of acuity — what solutions have the highest impact — and in experimenting with it, I gained new perspectives on where my contribution can be of greatest help. I plan to revisit the tool often.”

    Zubair Jandali Advisor and former VP of Sales, Reddit
  • “I was fascinated by the En-ROADS tool and grateful to learn about it from Chris, one of the En-ROADS team members. The interactive demonstration was fun, and the experience overall was inspiring. I’m planning to highlight the En-ROADS simulator in an upcoming talk at a [virtual] conference and hope that greater awareness of resources like this will lead to more informed and effective climate action at all levels of society.”

    Tim Falls Strategic Advisor, WEAVR
  • “This tool MUST be a pre-requisite for all college applications, organization recruitment and elected official eligibility. Everyone needs to be able to play with and see the potential impact of mitigation and adaptation measures on what is definitely the most dominant problem of our times – the global climate emergency!”

    Anirudh Gupta Program Manager & Director at Sustainability Mafia,
    former Airbus Business Development Executive
  • I found the En-ROADS tool very useful on two fronts 1) Imagining and experimenting with the variouspathways humanity takes and associated challenges (for example increased energy costs) 2) It is a great way of using data to explain the importance of certain steps to change-makers and actors in thefields. I would recommend it to everyone, irrespective of their association with climate work.”

    Nilesh Bansod Early-stage VC, ex-BCG
  • “The En-ROADS Simulator by Climate Interactive is an incredible interactive modeling tool that showcases how various climate initiatives impact forecasted global temperature changes. It’s been a critical factor in helping me understand what initiatives have the potential to drive the greatestimpacts on our changing climate.”

    Cody Simms Partner and Senior VP at Techstars
  • “We brought the En-ROADS simulator to a small group of our employees, and I was completely blown away by the insights it delivered. For a company like ours at the beginning of our climate journey, it was an invaluable exercise. My biggest takeaway was that we need to share this tool with more of our employees!”

    Erin Baudo Felter VP, Social Impact and Sustainability, Okta
