Empowering sustainable change via data, electrification, and digitalization

Today, humankind is at a unique turning point. Ahead of COP27 and amid both the global energy crisis, and the devastating effects of climate change, there has never been a more important time for sustainable action. Countries across the globe face an enormous task ahead, but looking forward from COP26 how much has really changed, and what’s next in the race to net zero?

Many businesses are yet to even begin initiating carbon reduction strategies. Entire industries, from data centres, homes, and buildings to industrial manufacturing, electrical infrastructure, and energy grids, must do more to drive sustainability in the race to net zero.

This session will explore how data, electrification, and digitisation can help us beat climate change, and share a vision for a greener, net zero future.
