Advanced Manufacturing

Listen to the article

In the current geopolitical context, local manufacturing and supply chain resilience are becoming increasingly important. At the same time, organizations face an imperative to tackle environmental sustainability and climate change to strengthen operations and positively impact people and the planet.

Lighthouses show us how to tackle these challenges: they are frontrunners demonstrating how Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies are transforming manufacturing and supply chains to overcome global disruptions. Across sectors and industries, the collaborative efforts of the Global Lighthouse Network illuminate the opportunities available to organizations that scale digital operations and improve workforce engagement across the value chain, delivering resilience, productivity, and environmental sustainability.

Join us live on 6 April 2022 to celebrate the newest members joining this community of frontrunners, including sustainability lighthouses — sites leveraging 4IR technologies to set new environmental performance standards — and to hear from their global leaders about how their organizations are using advanced technologies to empower their workforces and deliver concurrent sustainability and productivity improvements along value chains.

Watch this livestreamed session on this page the 6 April 2022.
