28 Juni 2022

During this Virtual Round Table as part of the Smart Data Platform, Dirk Robers of Cargill will elaborate on the focus of Dirk and his team to transform the agro-industrial company by creating new (digital) business models, for example regarding produced CO2 and converting it into monetary value. Hereby, transparency, responsibilities, and trust are key elements. Dirk Robers will share his lessons learned from two perspectives: how to acquire data in a sustainable way and how can qualitative data play an important role in reaching sustainability goals? After his presentation, there is a moderated discussion with Dirk and the other participants. You are most welcome to join!

This intersection of data science and sustainability proves to be challenging for organisations. Within the agri-industrial company Cargill, programs regarding CO2 and data gain insights into the carbon footprint of the transportation and the whole supply chain of the organisation.
