Presentation

How IT can drive sustainable postal services

IT has the potential to positively impact 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions (World Economic Forum, 2021), and will be critical to global achievement of the Paris agreement and UN sustainable development goals, where the postal industry and businesses across the supply chain are each responsible for significant contributions. Atos, a worldwide leader in sustainable IT, enables the postal industry to define and achieve sustainability goals with diverse technologies such as buildings management, supply chain management and IoT device management, in combination with world leading consulting and nature-based solutions. This presentation will illustrate the many areas where IT can drive progress.
