Bringing Sustainability Science to Life: 5-Minute Interview with Carina Johed

20 Aug, 2020



“Our goal is to bridge social ecological sustainability out to the business world and to create a link between what needs to be done and the people trying to solve the problems,” said Carina Johed, CTO and co-founder of Planethon, a company whose mission is to create a planet-positive future. Many breakthroughs in sustainability are locked away in scientific journal articles. Business developers want to put sustainability research into action, but lack a way to quickly find the right research and people to support their efforts. Using graph data science to analyze more than a million journal articles in a graph database like Neo4j offers a scalable approach that links science and business development. In this week’s five-minute interview (conducted at GraphTour NYC 2019), we speak with Carina Johed, CTO and co-founder of Planethon, about her company’s efforts to bridge social ecological sustainability with the business world. #Neo4j #GraphDatabase #Sustainability #BusinessDevelopment
