Develop more sustainable operations and reduce energy costs

Sustainability in the Cloud

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is focused on efficiency and continuous innovation across our global infrastructure as we continue on our path to powering our operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025.

Sustainable business practices in manufacturing operations are more critical than ever.
Equipment that’s not running at peak performance wastes energy. Using AWS services and AWS Partner solutions can help you discover ways to better understand and reduce WAGES (Water, Air, Gas, Electricity, and Steam) consumption and improve sustainability. Store, access, and analyze IoT data in an AWS data lake, and use ML capabilities to visualize plant floor data to pinpoint areas for improving energy efficiency.

Benefits

Improve energy efficiency
The results of a study by 451 Research show that AWS’s infrastructure is 3.6 times more energy efficient than the median of U.S. enterprise data centers surveyed.
Reduce cost and waste
Identify areas for process improvement and mitigate consumption of Water, Air, Gas, Electricity, and Steam.
Manage sustainability data
AWS enables companies to build sustainability solutions ranging from carbon tracking to energy conservation, using AWS services to ingest, analyze, and manage sustainability data.

Technology Innovation Fuels Hope for Energy Transition

Climate change took on greater immediacy in early August when the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a report projecting near-term climate change impacts, including extreme heat and rising sea levels, in every region of the world. The report also highlighted one piece of good news: Scientists feel more confident that reducing CO2 levels in the atmosphere will help us slow global warming.
