Measuring and reducing carbon emissions is a critical component of addressing climate change and achieving business success in an environmentally responsible manner.

The rapid growth of digital transformation and artificial intelligence-based applications has given way to emerging tracking technologies that can help companies make informed decisions in alignment with their net-zero targets. Utilizing carbon foot printing and green software and integrating ESG into core strategies can help companies achieve long-term success by addressing risks, seizing opportunities, and meeting the evolving expectations of stakeholders.

This workshop will guide you through Siemens Financial Services’ newly launched Decarbonization Business Optimizer that helps SMEs baseline their carbon footprint, create different scenarios for emission reduction, and discover a plan to reach their decarbonization goals. We will also hear practical and tangible advice and experience from companies actively using smart solutions available to UK and US businesses, to track and measure emissions, help adopt renewable energy sources, consider current emission offsets and foster a culture of sustainable practices.
