IoT and Sustainability
Massive IoT Supports Your ESG Goals
Gain operational efficiencies, improve customer experience AND support your ESG goals.
IoT-enabled physical assets give you the information you need to make an impact
Thinxtra’s passion is to accelerate the creation of large scale, cross-industry efficiencies for a more carbon-neutral and sustainable future.
We help companies gain visibility of their physical assets for greater control, reduced cost, assured quality of goods and enhanced customer experience.
IoT asset data provides the insights to reduce waste, increase asset utilisation, protect the world’s scarce resources and
promote health & safety at our workplace or in our homes.
Internet of Things (IoT)
Supporting your ESG Goals
The World Economic Forum report notes that IoT projects can help attain the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations.
How Thinxtra's IoT Solutions Support Your ESG Goals
IoT and Sustainability
70 percent of the water used for crops around the world is freshwater, according to UNESCO, and one of the goals is reducing its use. “Thanks to ground humidity sensors and environmental data, such as the rain forecast, we know when and where to irrigate with the right amount of water.” César Guerrero, director of the eastern division at the Center of Excellence and Adoption on Internet of Things (CEA-IOT) in Colombia.
“Buildings and infrastructure connected to the IoT can reduce energy consumption, improve air quality and reduce CO2 emissions. At BBVA City, the use of sensors and tools using artificial intelligence to manage energy in the most efficient way possible have reduced energy consumption between 12 percent and 15 percent from 2015 levels, reducing CO2 emissions by 1.43 tons per year.”
Australians spend 90 percent or more of their time indoors, and the CSIRO estimates the cost of poor indoor air quality in Australia may be as high as $12 billion per year. “Wide use of monitors displaying the state of indoor air quality must be mandated, because the general public currently have no way of knowing the condition of indoor spaces they occupy and share with others…” Lidia Morawska, Distinguished Professor in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, at Queensland University of Technology in Australia.
“Zestlab’s experience has shown that post-harvest technologies such as IoT sensors combined with cloud-based analytics can reduce fresh food waste by 50 percent or more.”
Route optimisation for waste management systems, smart recycling and reduction of asset loss and theft contribute to measurable waste reduction.
