Sustainability is on the mind of many companies, but are they using one of their most valuable assets? A system integrator can possibly be the missing link to making your organization green.
BUT HOW CAN A COMPANY BE MORE AND MORE SUSTAINABLE, AND HOW CAN A SYSTEM INTEGRATOR SUPPORT THESE INITIATIVES?
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)—the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change—states in its 2019 Special Report
“Global Warming of 1.5 °C,” which focused on how the CO2 emissions reduction can help containing the global warming, that, “The industry sector is the largest end-use sector, both in terms of final energy demand and GHG emissions. Its direct CO2 emissions currently account for about 25% of total energy-related and process CO2 emissions, and emissions have increased at an average annual rate of 3.4% between 2000 and 2014, significantly faster than total CO2 emissions”.
Most emissions are due to the combustion of fossil fuels, non-energy uses of fossil fuels in the petrochemical industry, and metal smelting—but transportation and electricity production also contribute.
In addition to emissions reduction, there are a lot of other guidelines to follow in order to have less of an impact on the environment.
