With COP26 fast approaching, sustainability has never featured higher up on the board’s agenda – but how can you improve sustainability, if you are only dealing with the tip of the iceberg?

R3-IoT’s Craig Fleming will discuss why new IoT technologies alone will not provide industry with the insight to activate sustainable change, and why space communications technology is the missing jigsaw piece to meet net zero targets.
