When:  Apr 11, 2023 from 01:00 PM to 02:00 PM (ET)


Sustainability and automation are tightly interlinked for profitability and new business growth. Over the past decade, many corporations pledged their commitment to sustainability and sustainable practices, with some making further commitments towards carbon neutrality and net zero. Shareholders and boards are demanding sustainability and social responsibility as key corporate values in addition to profitability from CEOs. Investors poured billions into sustainability in 2021 and analysts expect the levels to reach trillions in the next 2 decades. Automation could help fight inflation by reducing costs and driving new revenue streams and job creation.

Join us to discover how IBM Business Automation can be used to help you achieve the Environmental, Society and Governance (ESG) accountability objectives and the sustainability Triple Bottom Line (TBL) strategy framework that measures a business's success in three key areas: profit, people, and the planet.

  • Reduced paper usage: Automation can significantly reduce the need for paper-based processes, such as printing, filing, and mailing. By automating these processes, businesses can reduce their paper usage, which leads to less deforestation, lower carbon emissions, and less waste.
  • Energy efficiency: Automation can help businesses reduce their energy consumption by optimizing processes, such as turning off lights, adjusting heating and cooling systems, and reducing idle time on equipment. This can lead to lower energy costs, lower carbon emissions, and a reduced carbon footprint.
  • Waste reduction: Automation can help businesses reduce waste by optimizing production processes, which can reduce the amount of raw materials needed and minimize the amount of waste produced. Additionally, automation can help businesses track and monitor their waste output, allowing them to identify areas for improvement and implement more sustainable practices.
  • Sustainable supply chain: Automation can help businesses optimize their supply chain by improving inventory management, reducing transportation needs, and optimizing packaging. By doing so, businesses can reduce their carbon footprint and ensure their supply chain is more sustainable.
  • Data-driven sustainability: Automation can help businesses collect and analyze data related to sustainability metrics, such as energy usage, waste output, and carbon emissions. This data can help businesses identify areas for improvement and track progress towards sustainability goals, ultimately leading to more sustainable practices.
