Schneider Electric’s Innovation Summit East Asia 2020 will be an online-only event this year

The Schneider Electric’s Innovation Summit East Asia 2020, which takes place completely online on 4th November, is a platform for industry leaders and experts such as McDonald's and more, to share their knowledge and provide insights on how sustainability and technology can work in a company’s favour.

Why is sustainability and innovation so important?

Green-powered digital transformation is the key for businesses to rejuvenate and thrive and it's ever more important in the current landscape in 2020 where efficiency plays a big part in helping the bottom line and meeting customer expectations.

Massive breakthroughs when implemented right

For example, for Apple’s 2019 fiscal year, the tech giant saved 208,645,080 million kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity by ramping up the energy efficiency of its corporate facilities. Closer to home in Jurong, transport and logistics leader, Bolloré Logistics, has a state-of-the-art 50,000 m2 warehouse that sports multiple sustainability features such as a high energy efficient 43-meter-tall spiral conveyor that generates energy savings of up to 87%.

Online grocer RedMart opted for regular delivery trucks instead of refrigerated ones to deliver goods to its customers. This strategy resulted in significant cost savings while cutting down on its carbon footprint. The secret was its innovative use of delivery totes lined with reusable insulation and industry-grade ice plates.

By placing sustainability and innovation at the core of their business strategy, these companies have reduced costs and driven innovation while meeting their environmental goals. That is not the end of all the benefits though - governments support such companies and their sustainability initiatives through rebates and reductions of tariffs and taxes.

Innovation Summit highlights you can expect

And these are just two of the main elements; sustainability, and innovation, that will be addressed at the Summit. In light of the current pandemic, guest speakers will also will also touch upon how digital solutions can aid in monitoring and managing indoor air quality, employ contact-less technologies and come up with space management solutions to ensure safe distancing, safe occupancy thresholds and other benefits.
