WEBINAR: Is IoT Growth Destroying Or Healing The Planet?
Is IoT Growth Destroying Or Healing The Planet?
It won’t be long before connected devices outnumber people several times over… but with more need for electricity, raw materials and more e-waste, is this an environmental cataclysm in the making? Can the efficiency savings from IoT balance the costs? What impact will it have for different industries or consumers?
Drawing on research from IoT specialists Transforma Insights, this webinar explores the effect different kinds of connected devices are having not just on industries’ bottom line, but also on their sustainability. We also explore how other emerging technologies such as AI and Blockchain feed into the equation.
Anyone interested in the environmental and financial impact of the coming digital world should join us for good information, good conversation and the chance to have your questions answered.
Who should Listen?
IoT professionals; sustainability and environmental professionals; business and digital transformation project leaders in agriculture, automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, logistics, energy, utilities, oil & gas, mining, recycling & circular economy, telecoms and more.
