What’s missing in Design Thinking, how can 5G open new doors to more sustainable solutions, and how might sensors, automation and IoT enable climate-smart industrial solutions?
Cognizant’s Tech for Good series continues with a session about innovation as an essential element for a more sustainable planet. Welcome to a high-density seminar where business and tech experts will guide and inspire us through good examples.
CONNECTIVITY AND CIRCULARITY KEY FOR SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION
Can innovating for sustainability help us reduce energy, lower emissions and be more overall resource-efficient? The speakers from Telia, Epiroc, Bioteria and Cognizant shared their ongoing projects and initiatives from the frontier of 5G, connectivity, smart bacteria and Design Thinking.
If you missed the seminar or want to see it again you can watch it at your conveniance on-demand.
WHERE DESIGN THINKING WENT WRONG – AND HOW TO FIX IT
Has Design Thinking become outdated? With a growing concern about the ethical and environmental status of businesses and the use of technology in innovation, it’s high time to give sustainability its rightful place in the innovation process. Here's a blogpost by Sven Jagebro who also presents in the webinar.
COGNIZANTI: NAVIGATING THE DIGITAL AGE
Find out what senior leaders worldwide have learned from pushing the boundaries of change in Cognizant's annual journal.
Head of Scientific Affairs, Bioteria
Charlotta has a Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology and has spent the last ten years working with sales and marketing in scientific-related companies. She currently holds the position as the Head of Scientific Affairs at Bioteria Technologies, which includes R&D. In her work, Charlotta strives to develop biotechnological applications to tackle the environmental problems associated with waste and wastewater management, specifically caused by fat and grease. Bioteria is leading the biorevolution and implementation of biotech in a sustainable urbanization and a circular society.Close
Wastewater treatment, from households, restaurants and industries, is a major global challenge. The increasing volume of fat is one of the main issues in this drama: the grease clogs the sewerage systems, causes the wastewater to be discharged into lakes and seas, and the emptying of restaurants’ large grease separators consumes significant truck transport resources (leading to CO2 emissions and environmental problems).
However, with smart innovation, the right bacteria and digital solutions, new doors can be opened to sustainable solutions – with the potential to reduce the approx. 1.5 million heavy transports of fat in Sweden by 90%.
Head of Business Innovation, Telia Company
Mats Lundback is VP, Head of Telia Business Innovations, a unit within Telia Global and home of Telia Company’s innovation agenda. Telia is the leading operator in the Swedish market and a key player in the digitalization of Sweden. Telia Business Innovation drives development of new business and supports the countries with customer-driven innovation to strengthen their businesses.
Mats has been in the telco/IT industry since mid-'90s, where previous roles include CTO for Telia Sweden, CTO for Telia’s Eurasian operations and mobile technology strategies, with the the world’s first 4G launch in 2009.
5G opens up a brand-new space for innovative solutions that will lower CO2 emissions and create a more resource-efficient society. But what does it mean to be able to handle vast amounts of data, to control complete workflows, and to form solutions based on non-stop connection?
Telia’s concept Daring Goals raises the bar in its sustainability journey. It covers international goals but also includes customer projects focusing on taking advantage of the new technology from a sustainability perspective. Mats Lundbäck shares both strategic opportunities with 5G and case studies where the technology creates tangible effects.
Business Development, Epiroc
Olav has had several positions in mining technology, automation and product management at Atlas Copco – today with responsibility for business development at Epiroc, a company that recently was part of Atlas Copco.Close
How can sensors, remote automation and IoT become a toolbox for efficiency and more climate smart solutions? How can industrial operation, machine maintenance and expertise support become integrated parts of remote solutions, saving costs – but also, saving resources and reducing the need for flying staff all across?
Olav Kvist brings you the insights from world leading mining technology company Epiroc as a true example of how digitalization and new techniques can drive major change and open the pathway for meeting the future with more efficient and climate safe industrial solutions.
Nordic Head of Digital Strategy Consulting, Cognizant
When Design Thinking was established as a strategy for innovation, sustainability wasn’t considered one of its essential building blocks. With a growing concern about the ethical and environmental status of businesses, it’s high time to include the sustainability aspect right from the innovation process’ very start. Using tangible examples, Sven explains why this new element should be added to the established innovation process.
