Digital and Sustainable Transformation

Embracing the Twin Transition to Build Resilience and Innovation

June 19, 2023 • The Helicon • London

By adopting a twin transition strategy, companies can leverage technology and data to achieve their sustainability objectives. Instead of treating digital and sustainability as separate initiatives, this approach integrates both to yield significant gains in efficiency and productivity. The twin transition strategy has the potential to create a positive impact by leveraging data assets, and infrastructure, while accelerating sustainability efforts throughout the organization.


At TWIST we are bringing together a diverse group of leaders from supply chain, manufacturing, procurement, digital, finance and sustainability to discuss how to execute a Twin Transition strategy.
