Sustainable activity and solutions are no longer an option for any of us. It goes without saying that sustainability has become a strategic focus area for companies, governments, and society at large.
As countries raise the expectations on GHG emissions to limit the increase to 1.5 degrees, it is important to track our progress. That is where the role of digital technologies is so important. You cannot manage what you cannot measure. Digital technologies can enable organizations to go beyond the traditional improvement opportunities in operating results to make the GHG and climate protection measurable and bring visibility to diversity and inclusion. The next phase of digital adoption by organizations should be for reducing emissions, waste and inequality.
This sharing session on “Digital Technologies for Sustainability” aims to create insight and awareness into:
- The need for embedding the sustainability metrics into the business process metrics
- The government-industry collaboration for digital linkages between national policies, and compliance requirements.
- The importance of linking operational technologies with business technologies including the emerging developments (AI, IoT, Blockchain etc.)
- Digital solutions for integrated sustainability planning and management
- Key challenges and best practice
