Decarbonization meets digitalization
In 2021, two major industrial revolutions were happening at the same time: digitalization and decarbonization. Both are intertwined and driving a global rethink while already starting to shape a transformation in our industry. Digitalization provides decarbonization technologies – it is an enabler, leading to enhanced transparency, better collaboration, and more informed production and consumption decisions thanks to data. At our level, it also allows us to digitalize maintenance and optimize energy consumption, and thereby to help make cities more sustainable.
We also kept working on our own actions towards a low-carbon economy and a healthier planet. In 2021, we advanced our own sustainability agenda by committing to a “no waste to landfill” objective across all our sites globally by 2023, a full transition to renewable electricity by 2025, and the setting of science-based emissions reduction targets.
