How is smart technology and manufacturing going to help companies enhance their sustainability aspects tomorrow? Studies estimate that plant will be more energy efficient than other factories and will use significantly less water. For example, the smart factory built by Renault in Tangiers, Morocco, has been estimated to have reduced CO2 emission by almost half. This was done by close monitoring to ensure that effluents are managed and properly controlled and not released in to nearby water bodies untreated. In addition, energy procurement was shifted to consider predominantly renewable resources with particular emphasis on solar and hydro power generation.
