The manufacturing industry is reportedly responsible for two-thirds of greenhouse gas emissions.
We speak to the World Economic Forum and The International Center for Industrial Transformation who have been working together to raise awareness around the latest developments and technologies enabling the sector to decarbonise.
Technological innovations are fundamentally changing the way we live, work and play as well as being pivotal to solving the challenges of climate change. Singapore Management University’s Winston Chow, and Marie Cheong from Wavemaker Impact, describe how innovation in technology will not just help us save the planet but also be a powerful enabler across the value chain.
Cities are where the most crucial action is needed when it comes to fighting climate change. It’s estimated our urban centres account for less than 2% of the world’s land mass but consume nearly 80% of energy and produce more than 60% of greenhouse gas emissions. Hear from global experts about how we should face and roll-back this critical issue.
Increasing stakeholder and consumer-led pressure globally is beginning to have an impact with at least one-fifth of the world’s largest listed companies committing to net zero targets. The Head of Sustainability at South East Asia’s biggest bank, DBS, tells us how it is meeting the challenge and the Singapore Government-owned SG Innovate demonstrates how much it values purpose-driven investments.
The urgency to act on climate change has never been greater, and Equinix is taking a leading role.
The global digital infrastructure company has set an ambitious goal to be climate neutral by 2030, knowing that energy demands are only going to radically increase in the years ahead.
