Executive Summary

Net zero has rapidly become integrated within industrial organizations’ strategies. It is in operations, however – where the rubber meets the road – that net zero initiatives come to fruition. For many operations personnel, grandiose corporate dialogue around net zero targets can feel intangible, especially where there is constant pressure to perform, at facilities where worker shortages are routine. Verdantix wanted to find out how operations decision-makers view the concept of net zero within their day-to-day responsibilities, and discover the tools and technologies they are using to aid business transformation. We asked net-zero-specific questions in our annual global corporate survey of 304 operations, maintenance and engineering decision-makers, to shed light on the software and technologies being deployed to aid the achievement of net zero targets.
