- Experts will discuss how they helped top companies, like Bimbo Bakeries, integrate sustainability into its factories, driving them closer to reaching net-zero goals
- Visit the Schneider Electric booth, #LU-7245, to see new technologies and speak with experts on how these innovations can help CPG customers optimize operations while driving a more efficient and resilient future
CHICAGO, Oct. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, will present four expert sessions at 2022 PACK EXPO, October 23-26 in Chicago. These sessions will take a deep dive into developing operational sustainability, including the company’s path towards net-zero carbon emissions, building sustainable factories, and navigating cybersecurity in an increasingly connected world.
These thought leadership sessions are critically timed to the current state and needs of the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) industry. Over the past decade, the CPG space has been struggling to create paths towards greener, smarter, and more efficient factories. To make matters even more challenging, cybersecurity threats are becoming increasingly advanced and more difficult to detect. As Schneider Electric solutions evolve through digitalization, organizations can meet difficult-to-reach goals while becoming safer facilities by taking steps to future-proof their business.
“While the path to a more sustainable future is critical for any business, the Consumer Packaged Goods industry is facing both unique challenges and opportunities as companies explore ways to drive a more efficient, digital and greener future,” said Jon Olson, Senior Vice President, Industrial Automation USA, Schneider Electric. “We are excited to partner with CPG companies as they embrace next-generation technologies to drive greater efficiency, sustainability, resiliency into their operations to benefit their operations and the environment over the long term.”
Schneider Electric experts will be joined by customers and partnerships in sharing their insights in thought leadership sessions during Pack Expo:
