Sustainability and a Holistic Viewpoint for Greater Efficiency – ep. 3

By Blake Snodgrass

Hi there, and thanks for tuning in again! In this third podcast of our continuing Sustainability series, we are joined again by Eryn Devola, Head of Sustainability at Siemens Digital Industries, and our special guest Rahul Garg, VP Industrial Machinery and SMB Business Program at Siemens Digital Industries Software. In this third episode, Eryn and Rahul discuss the current trends in industrial machinery and what is driving the need for sustainability.

They will look at digitalization and sustainability holistically, helping a company to be more adaptable, agile, and flexible and improve the overall ability to deliver their product. The focus is on the best way to optimize the design process using digitalization tools while looking at the cost of the part from a supplier, its carbon footprint and the supplier’s carbon footprint in delivering it to your factory or location.

Specific topics covered include:

  • A brief background of Eryn and Rahul’s professional work experience.
  • The four issues driving the need for change in the industrial machinery industry.
  • How the need for electrification is driving the need for efficiency.
  • Leveraging digitalization for energy efficiency, decarbonization circularity, and resource efficiency.
  • How to best optimize your design process using digitalization tools for sustainable outcomes.
