Presentation

Accelerate supply chain decarbonization through digitalization

Supply chain decarbonization is one of the most impactful measures companies need to take to mitigate climate change. However, decarbonization at-scale is challenged by a perceived lack of accessibility to relevant and accurate data. Hence, many stakeholders are left behind with almost no hope to strategize their path towards a climate friendly business ecosystem. This session will focus on how digitization is employed to provide ways and means for decarbonization to gain a robust foothold within the logistics’ corporate value chain. Hear how AWS customers are taking data-driven approach and leveraging purpose-built technological solutions from AWS to proactively implement a strategy to decarbonize their supply chain.
