Advantech reports significant success at SPS Italia 2022
SPS Italia also saw the launch of Advantech’s ESG campaign, seeking to highlight environmental, social and corporate governance issues, in line with its mission of “Enabling an Intelligent and Sustainable Planet”, and the show’s overall theme of sustainability.
While these issues have always been core to Advantech’s business ethos, the ESG strategy sets clear aims and targets for the company in all facets of its operations, with the aim of supporting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in areas such as improved energy efficiency, energy-saving in buildings and in manufacturing, and low carbon emissions in logistics and retail.
In particular, green energy is set to account for 20% or more of Advantech’s total electricity use by 2025, while electricity use per capita was cut by 30% for lighting, 10% for air-conditioning, and 10% for electricity consumption during 2021.
Advantech’s Taiwan-based parent company was also among the first in its sector to commit to Science-Based Targets, including a reduction of 60% in greenhouse gas creation by 2030, and complete carbon neutrality by 2032.
Dario Nacawa, Regional Sales Manager Italy and Iberia of Advantech Europe stated: “The ESG strategy will continue to permeate all aspects of our business, as we take every possible opportunity to make our impact on the world a positive one – technologically, socially and environmentally.
“This approach will continue to extend to our partners and suppliers, to ensure that our supply chain offers customers a truly ethical and sustainable product and service offering.”
