Creating a Competitive Advantage in Carbon and Cost for the Food and Drinks Industry

03 May 2024


Measuring carbon emissions has become a priority for businesses in the food and drinks sector. But the process of building a complete picture of emissions, levers and impact can be complex. Through scenario modelling, the true impact on carbon emissions and product can be identified. Once understood, making informed decisions becomes easier – reducing not only carbon, but also cost.

This webinar will highlight:

  • How to get visibility of your carbon emissions by breaking down your manufactured products.
  • How a granular understanding can help you innovate, strategise, and make better decisions.
  • Why cutting carbon in your operations can also help you cut cost.
  • Sustainability and decarbonisation opportunities in the food and drinks industry.

As the climate agenda grows in importance for both people and the planet, those businesses that can quickly identify sustainable growth strategies will shape their industries and establish long-lasting competitive advantages. Join Siemens and Vendigital to learn more.
