与计算行业领导者的可持续发展讨论:抓住创新机会

我最近很荣幸地参加了一个由计算机行业的可持续发展从业者组成的小组,讨论题目是:在湍流时期和超越中驾驶脱碳“在负责任的商业峰会上。讨论由路透社托管,并监督董事总经理,可持续发展解决方案,Engie Impact。加入我作为小组成员是Prakash Arunkundrum,Logitech和Logitech和Page Motes的可持续发展负责人,戴尔可持续发展总监。主题范围从使用数据时评估可持续性风险,以吸引供应商在可持续发展目标中,以及利用融资机制加速可持续性进展。

由于每个小组师都讨论了我们公司正在进行的各种可持续发展目标和倡议,因此我们的行业中许多企业都在创新,不仅可以改善他们的足迹,而且是他们的价值链供应商和客户的创新。在应用188金宝搏备用网址材料中,我们将我们的可持续发展框架称为1x-100x-10,000x,代表我们自己的操作(1x),我们如何与客户和供应商(100x)合作,以及我们的技术如何用于推进可持续性全球范围(10,000倍)。应用努力加强供应链的环境和社会可持续性,或成功2013.,以及提高我们产品的效率,即所谓的“3 × 30”目标,是我们公司帮助推动整个行业的可持续发展的领先方式。令人鼓舞的是,我的小组成员和峰会上的其他公司也从整体角度看待可持续发展。让志同道合的旅行者踏上更可持续发展的旅程,对行业中的每个人都有好处。

讨论的另一个关键洞察力是气候变化和水使用等问题不仅对我们的业务挑战,而且是机遇。By developing ever-more efficient products—the 3 by 30 goals call for Applied’s manufacturing systems to use 30% less energy and 30% fewer chemicals while increasing output efficiency 30% by 2030—we have an opportunity to differentiate our product offering and help our customers meet their own sustainability objectives. In many ways this is a virtuous circle as more efficient products can drive down the overall energy consumption of technology.

I started my remarks on the panel by noting that artificial intelligence is the biggest technology inflection of the next decade, projected to create trillions of dollars in economic value by 2030. But if we don’t act now to improve the efficiency of delivering AI, then energy use for AI data centers could grow from about 2% of global electricity supply today to more than 15% in less than a decade. The panel discussion more than reinforced that risk, as well as the enormous opportunity our industry has in meeting the challenge. As evidenced by the many bold moves we’ve implemented over the past year, Applied Materials is excited to help lead the way.
