Sustainable Innovation in the Textile Industry As global apparel consumption continues to rise—an expected increase of 60% by 2030—that growth could have a dangerous impact on the environment.

As Earth’s resources become more and more constrained, the global fashion industry is looking toward innovative materials and strategies to reduce its environmental impact and carbon footprint. But bringing consumers and others in the apparel industry value chain along on the sustainability journey can be a challenge.

Comments Off on APM: An Overlooked First Step Toward Digital Transformations

APM: An Overlooked First Step Toward Digital Transformations Digital Transformation and Industry 4.0 are complex concepts, and many manufacturers struggle to sort through what it means and how to approach the topic.  Meanwhile, manufacturing and process businesses continue to face ongoing labor crunches and a mass retirement wave (taking significant tribal knowledge with them), which add to the urgency and stress to understand the concept, develop a strategy, and take action to maintain or increase a competitive edge. For manufacturers with industrial asset data but are struggling to put it to use, Asset Performance Management may offer a unique approach to launching your manufacturing digital transformation.  Many industrial businesses are finding that Asset Performance Management is a quick way to leverage their existing data to improve reliability and reduce their environmental footprint by improving operational efficiency. This webinar will offer: Practical definitions of digital transformation for industrial manufacturers Guidance for evaluating where your organization stands on a digitalized-operations scale How Asset Performance Management and Analytics fit into digital transformation Highlights of typical starting points, potential roadblocks and mitigations, and the benefits and differences between them Moderator: Joel Makower, Chairman & Executive Editor, GreenBiz Group Speakers: John Vargo, Director, MES & Digital Supply Chain, RoviSys Matt Kirchner, Head of Product, Atonix Digital If you can’t tune in live, please register and we will email you a link to access the archived webcast footage and resources, available to you on-demand after the webcast. taylor flores Wed, 07/22/2020 – 13:24 Joel Makower Chairman & Executive Editor GreenBiz Group @makower John Vargo Director, MES & Digital Supply Chain RoviSys Matt Kirchner Head of Product Atonix Digital gbz_webcast_date Tue, 08/11/2020 – 10:00 – Tue, 08/11/2020 – 11:00

Comments Off on Women in Sustainability: Moving from Beginner to Badass

Women in Sustainability: Moving from Beginner to Badass Some positive news: Recent GreenBiz research finds the number of women in sustainability leadership positions has grown dramatically over the past decade — today, 58 percent of sustainability executives in large companies are female, as are 54 percent in smaller firms. Participation rates aren’t the only change: Pay gaps between genders have narrowed. But there are still plenty of systemic challenges to navigate — from breaking the glass ceiling into the C-suite to proactively addressing the lack of ethnic diversity on sustainability teams. What does it take to succeed as a woman in corporate sustainability? This intimate conversation  will offer insights about a range of topics such as how to lead compassionately in a time of crisis, how to navigate systemic corporate obstacles such as pay equity and lack of diversity within management, and how to develop effective mentoring networks for women and people of color.
