INDUSTRIAL CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Addressing industrial problems with more sustainable, digital, connected business models and innovations.

Manufacturing, transportation and access to energy have long been a pillars of economic prosperity. Emerging technologies, such as advanced analytics and artificial intelligence (AI), are transforming the world of production and creating new opportunities for industry, society and the environment.

 

They provide industrial business operators with tools and skills for development of new operating systems and business models, transform the way people work, and use technology to be more efficient and sustainable. In parallel, consumers are changing rapidly with force, demanding personalized products and services, placing added pressure on manufacturers to innovate to remain competitive and achieve sustainable growth, while dealing with increased resource constraints as well as challenges like climate change and pandemics.

 

Through our programs, we invest with our partners in startups that have innovative and scalable solutions for the future of industrial operations like transportation, manufacturing and energy.
