How technology can lower carbon footprint in focus at AVEVA conference

AVEVA CEOAVEVA, one of the global leaders in engineering and industrial software, today announced its third AVEVA World Digital (AWD) conference, themed ‘Accelerate Your Digital Intelligence' which will take place from 26-28 January 2021 

The online event is set to explore how leading companies are embracing innovation and applying intelligent software to reshape their industrial operations. It will demonstrate how emerging technologies such as AI, Cloud, Digital Twin, Visualisation and data and analytics are supporting advancements in sustainability, and enabling organisations to make significant changes to improve the environment.

Technology is playing a vital role in achieving real-time optimisation, improving decision-making, and digitally enabling business operations, supported by an often-remote workforce to drive substantial cost reductions. Furthermore, with COVID-19 exposing pressures on the industrial sector, sustainable business strategies have come to the forefront with CTOs now seeing sustainability as part of the transformation imperative. As a result, organisations, are adopting real-time environmental monitoring to reduce the carbon emissions of heavy industries. Visualisation, Digital Twin, Machine Learning and AI are technologies that are helping to manage these priorities.

As part of AWD’s sustainability driven agenda:

• Jean-Pascal Tricoire, chairman and CEO, Schneider Electric, will discuss how the quest for a more sustainable future is driving organisational innovation and opportunity in 2021

• Lisa Johnston, CMO and CSO, AVEVA, will focus on how forward-thinking organisations can accelerate their sustainability agendas

• Jan Shumate, director, Eastman Chemical Company, will discuss how digital transformation at Eastman Chemical Company is driving sustainable innovation

• An Executive Sponsor Forum, led by Lisa Johnston, CMO and CSO, hosted by Lisa Wee, sustainability director, AVEVA, will feature speakers from Microsoft, Accenture and Verdantix focussing on ‘Partnerships for a Sustainable Future.’
