and Creating a Circular Economy

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT

We are pleased to invite you to an exclusive discussion with your peers to gain your perspective in support of our ongoing industry research.

Join us for this Timely Discussion!

Manufacturing leaders face near-conflicting goals of improving financial performance while reducing environmental impact. By controlling product lifecycle, manufacturers can improve process efficiency, profitability and sustainability. Advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence and Blockchain can accelerate innovation, enhance security and reduce waste. However, manufacturers and their partners are at varying levels of technology adoption, which may stifle their ability to meet differing targets.

The key questions we will be discussing are:

Where and how are advanced technologies implemented across the ecosystem?

How important is sustainability to manufacturing?

What are the best ways to measure and improve sustainability activities?

Which technologies are at the forefront of environmentally sound manufacturing?

How can manufacturing prepare future generations for sustainable manufacturing careers?

During this Virtual Think Tank, Frost & Sullivan’s Roberta Gamble, Partner and Vice President, will moderate a discussion with manufacturing industry thought leaders to explore, share and learn about how organizations are driving efficiency, profitability, and environmental sustainability.
