It wasAnd the A leading global industrial software company, driving digital transformation and sustainability, will highlight how digital technologies can support public-private partnerships and unlock innovation to bridge the implementation gap on climate change at COP27.

The United Nations Climate Change Conference 2022 is taking place from 6-18 November in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. AVEVA, a sponsor of the Climate Action Parallel Innovation Zone, believes that reliable data-driven technologies are essential to decarbonizing, driving the responsible use of the world’s resources and delivering innovative, climate-oriented products in the net economy. AVEVA is one of the first 50 companies in the world to have its net zero liability verified through the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).

AVEVA’s attendance at COP27 will be led by some of the most prominent climate advocates: Amish Sabharwal, Executive Vice President – Engineering & Simulation and member of AVEVA’s Executive Leadership Team; Lisa Wei, Global Head of Sustainability; and Nayef Bu Shaya, Vice President, Middle East, Africa and Turkey.

During a number of thought-provoking sessions at the Sustainable Innovation Forum 2022, held alongside COP27, AVEVA executives will use real-life examples to showcase how digital technologies unlock opportunities in the net zero economy.

Global Opportunities in Mitigating Climate Change

Sabharwal will join the plenary on 10 November. Together with UN executives, he will seek to explain why mitigating climate change presents our greatest opportunity yet.

“United Nations data shows that immediate action can halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and put us on track to meet our goal of keeping global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. At the same time, we are facing the largest An opportunity for us so far. Climate change is accelerating the Fourth Industrial Revolution and nowhere is this more visible than societies and industries here in Africa.” “The decisions we make at COP27 and beyond will put the global economy on the right track to build resilient, zero-zero economies that drive the adaptation and mitigation agenda. Digital technologies are integral to building new industries and supply chains that will provide sustainable growth and create new jobs.”

“Bridging the implementation gap in ambitious global commitments to decarbonization is a major source of economic opportunity for businesses and societies,” added Sabhrwal.

Move towards sustainable handprint thinking

On November 9, radio broadcaster Nik Gowing will interview Wee in the context of her role as a climate leader. She will share insights from the front lines of climate change mitigation and provide real-life examples of how AVEVA and its partners are driving it forward by co-creating climate-responsive technology solutions to help usher in a carbon-neutral economy.

“At AVEVA, we know we can achieve an exponential impact through the products we bring to market while supporting our customers in their decarbonization journey,” Wei said. “Now, our thinking has moved beyond measuring and managing our carbon footprint to looking at our sustainability footprint. This positive contribution to sustainability through business activities and partnerships is a way to advance it to secure a better future for humanity and our planet.”

The role of partnerships in decarbonization

Also on November 9, Bouchaia will amplify the debate on innovation in the face of climate change in a high-level spotlight session, with case studies on how global organizations are responding to — and benefiting from — the opportunities arising from focusing on net-zero goals.

“Public-private partnerships can accelerate the delivery of the next generation of low-carbon technologies by 2030 and break down silos in developing new low-emissions products to meet the world’s zero-zero goals,” Bouchaia said. “AVEVA’s experience has already demonstrated the role of digital technology in developing and scaling green networks and accelerating sustainable development through smart cities and smart water applications. We are convinced of the importance of advancing private sector cooperation in Scope 3 for upstream and downstream mitigation activities. We believe that an open and interconnected industrial economy based on networks Free-flowing data will be essential to accelerating and expanding those sectors where decarbonization is difficult.”
