Digital and Sustainable Transformation

Embracing the Twin Transition to Build Resilience and Innovation

June 19, 2023 • The Helicon • London • FREE

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.

    Sakura End to End Digital Transformation Journey

     With -  Wilco Alblas | Vice President Customer Operations | Sakura Finetek Europe B.V.

    Accurate, accessible, and readily available diagnostics for patients is the primary focus of Sakura. When they started on their digital transformation journey they found that their customized legacy ERP system was an impediment to growth and scalability given the vast amounts of data that were critical to their patient needs.

    Their solution was to partner with Oracle's modular cloud solution and work with PwC as an implementation partner. This has enabled Sakura to standardize protocols across the value chain resulting in greater cost savings, and most importantly, improved patient care.
