Imagining, designing and testing for a more sustainable economy

Achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 will require drastic reductions in anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from fossil fuels. Industry is committed to this purpose, and digital technologies can help by imagining, designing and testing products, materials and manufacturing processes from the beginning and throughout all stages of development. “We support the transition to circular economy models by facilitating ecodesign and sustainable resource management. The virtual twin is a powerful tool for supporting decisions and developing data-driven collaborative practices, streamlined operational processes, and new business models.”

By working together, we can create harmony between the economic, social and environmental dimensions and achieve long term sustainable prosperity.”
