No green without digital

Transforming industries for a net-zero future

December 2, 12:00 - 13:00 GST

Finland Pavilion, OR02G4, Blue Zone, Expo City Dubai

Digitalization will play a key role in enabling climate action. In the energy sector, it will support both renewables generation and grid transformation, allowing the sector to move faster with the green transition. Technologies such as digital twins and AI can also help hard-to-abate sectors find ways to accelerate sustainability efforts. Digitalization will play a key role in supporting all industries to decarbonize.

In this event, Nokia brought together representatives from key industries to debate industrial digitalization and decarbonization. The event also covered policy, regulatory and financing perspectives, debating what is needed to unleash the full enabling potential of digital.
