ANNOUNCING: An exciting, limited series IMS Evolve Podcast!
COP27 kicks off this Sunday in Egypt, where the world will once again come together to try to find solutions to the climate emergency. After the hottest summer on record here in the UK, urgent action is needed to avert further catastrophe and, whilst COP is seen primarily as a chance for governments to work out solutions, every industry needs to do its part to tackle climate change. The food retail sector is no different, and as we’ve seen during our two decades of helping to digitally transform food retailers and the cold chain, technology can go a long way to improving sustainability and decarbonisation efforts. But, don’t just take our word for it…
To mark COP27, our Managing Director of Global Retail, Jason Murphy, will be hosting a five-episode podcast, JasON COP27, which brings together voices from across the world of retail technology to discuss how IoT and digitalisation can help the food retail sector become greener. Each episode will focus on one of the key themes of COP27, with expert guests discussing how to mitigate the climate crisis; how to adapt to the changes we have already seen in our environment; how organisations can finance going greener; and why collaboration both between different organisations and also with vendors can help to get the most out of green technology. The fifth and final episode will look to review the outcomes of this years conference and recap what retailers can do to help meet the agreed climate goals.
At IMS Evolve, we’re extremely proud of the work we do with retailers to help them combat the climate emergency, and we’re excited to have this opportunity to share our conversations with some of the leading voices in the industry about the positive impact digitalisation can have on our responsibility to protect our environment.
The first episode 'Mitigation – A Focus on Food Waste' will be available on Monday, 7th November, on Spotify.
