The world is changing. We're moving from a world of scarcity to one of abundance—and it’s happening faster than ever before.

The shift is driven by the Internet of Things (IoT), which is connecting billions of devices together and making them talk to each other. The result? A massive network that can learn and react, used by people all over the world in ways we never could have imagined before.

But there's a problem: this new technology isn't sustainable. It's not built to last, and it requires huge amounts of energy to run. That's why we're working with governments, corporate, NGO's on an initiative that will change everything: Sustainability, Powering ESG with IoT & 5G. What are trends on ESG, in policies, technologies? What are the social & business impacts? This panel will explore the current trends, technologies, upcoming policies & geopolitics in implementing ESG.
