This IDC PlanScape discusses the digital transformation (DX) strategies that support manufacturing sustainability goals that would impact future organizational, operational, and sustainability goals. Sustainable strategies are helping with improvements in the manufacturing landscape. The climate crisis in today's world urges us to rethink business practices. Businesses across Asia/Pacific (AP) are under pressure to meet the regulatory requirements that aid in mitigating the challenges of climate change and environmentally sustainable manufacturing practices. Ecologically sustainable manufacturing is where efficient production of goods occurs using processes that minimize the waste of energy, water, and other resources.
"Sustainability is now a compulsory element in organization strategy and operations to increase growth and competitiveness. Successful deployment of DX strategies for sustainable manufacturing requires a joint effort from multidisciplinary teams in the organization and stakeholders across their value chain.
