Digital technologies make many things possible. Just at the time that a number of organizations are seeking to make manufacturing more ‘green’, these technologies are advancing and making more possible in this space. The ‘greening’ of manufacturing shows up in interesting ways and opens up new horizons in roles and skills. That means that there will be more job creation, mixing conventional roles with roles we never dreamed of.

In this session, you’ll learn:
• How technology is shaping the future of “green manufacturing”
• What the future roles and skills for “green manufacturing” will look like
• What strategies will help you drive the workforce component of your “green” strategy
• Steps you can take today to prepare the talent you have today for a sustainable tomorrow
