Digital Efficiency: Unlocking the Low-Carbon Economy
May 31, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Operations Strategy Expertise From GE and Intel
In today’s competitive and volatile global landscape, digital solutions, enabled by the Industrial Internet, can now reduce operations costs, increase output, use natural resources more efficiently, and lower environmental impact. Intel and GE call this “Digital Efficiency.”
Digital Efficiency is a critical differentiator, enabling businesses and industrial organizations to find opportunities for growth and competitiveness. At the same time, Digital Efficiency represents an important opportunity to help solve global resource challenges.
In a hypothetical scenario, where just a handful of digital solutions are scaled across key industries, we estimate businesses could save $81 billion and avoid up to 823 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions each year.
Join us May 31 for a round table discussion about how digital solutions are playing an important role in decarbonization across industries and paving the way for high-impact solutions in areas such as:
- Ground Transportation
