The final episode in the current Smart Manufacturing podcast series covers sustainability, a significant global topic across many industries that minimizes adverse effects and takes action to contribute to the business and improve the industry’s impact on the environment.

Chris Pennington, Global Industry Marketing Leader for Industrial Machinery at Siemens Digital Industries Software, is joined by Rahul Garg, the Vice President of the Industrial Machinery and Mid-market Program at Siemens Digital Industries Software.

  • Recycling of raw materials (bright products) that have value to improve company financials and reduce a negative environmental impact.
  • A focus on machine design and energy efficiency.
  • An improvement in supply chain energy consumption and recycling practices to ensure parts are available.
