Digital technology holds enormous potential to increase sustainability, and there are as many possible approaches as there are technologies in the toolbox. Five leading companies offer inspiration and insight.
Solar panels, true to their name, don’t technically work at night. But a California researcher claims he’s found a way to keep them generating power long after the sun sets.
We have pioneered the development of a new detectable black pigment for our High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) bottles – which we use for our TRESemmé and Lynx (Axe) brands – so they can now be ‘seen’ by recycling plant scanners and sorted for recycling.
Natural climate solutions
“Natural Climate Solutions” (NCS) help nature do what it’s been doing for millions of years: sequester and store carbon. New research shows that these solutions could deliver 37% of the emissions reductions needed to limit global warming to 2°C.
Forests have long served as a critical carbon sink, consuming about a quarter of the carbon dioxide pollution produced by humans worldwide. But decades of fire suppression, warming temperatures and drought have increased wildfire risks — turning California’s forests from carbon sinks to carbon sources.
