AI-Powered Sustainable Manufacturing

Pain point
C3 AI Sustainability for Manufacturing Solution

Lack of visibility into equipment, line, and process-level sustainability metrics

Sustainability-focused digital twins of manufacturing facilities provide comprehensive view of energy, emissions, water, and waste within and across plants

Limited collaboration between sustainability and manufacturing teams to identify project opportunities

AI-based alerts and recommendations identify specific operational opportunities with estimated sustainability impact

Inability to track product carbon footprints and leverage sustainability investments to competitively differentiate

Industry-specific data models and out-of-the-box emission factor libraries enable advanced product carbon footprint analysis

Time-consuming manual calculation of project savings

Automated AI/ML project savings measurement and verification track sustainability ROI at the equipment and plant levels

Difficult to track and report progress against sustainability goals

Continuous monitoring of plant and enterprise sustainability goals aligned to major ESG reporting requirements

Existing systems are rigid, closed, and not scalable

Flexible, secure, and open platform offers robust integrations and full interoperability with all enterprise and extraprise systems
