Technologies and Industry
Sustainability in the face of increasing climate change risk: What, practically speaking, does that mean for the corporate world? For manufacturing, chemical, materials and process companies, it means transforming to low-emissions methods and technologies – and exploiting the growth of renewable energy to power this transformation. For other corporate enterprises it also means adaptation – leveraging computation and communications technologies for better forecasting, resilience and risk mitigation.
Day 1 of this event will showcase bold, innovative faculty, impactful MIT research programs and disruptive startups all working to decarbonize industrial processes and improve resilience. Building on this, Day 2 will feature a morning of workshops to engage more deeply with several leading MIT centers who are dedicated to solving industrial sustainability challenges in water, plastics, aviation and setting GHG emissions targets.
Focused interactive workshops to engage, in-depth, with MIT centers, on opportunities to move forward; network with peer companies.
