We enable companies to discover, create, make and sell products sustainably, while meeting their environmental, social and corporate governance commitments and creating value for all stakeholders.

Sustainability and environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) are a top priority for the investor community and for brands across industries. In Rockwell Automation's 2024 State of Smart Manufacturing Report, the number of organizations with some form of policy increased to 98%, and those with formal policies is 86%, up from 78% in 2023.

Reducing energy usage, repurposing / recycling and maximizing resources are must-haves as technology is being used to squeeze every ounce of efficiency from operations. Manufacturers are turning to smart manufacturing technology to achieve their sustainability and ESG goals, with a focus on improving quality, cutting costs and driving OEE.

Our services align with these key sustainability and ESG goals

  • Climate action
  • Clean water
  • Clean, affordable energy
  • Good health and wellbeing
  • Decent work and economic growth
  • Industry, innovation and infrastructure
  • Responsible consumption and production

Supply chain sustainability is often a natural byproduct of digital transformation

A focused strategy that encompasses digital technologies and capabilities across the value chain enables companies to meet and exceed market expectations while also achieving sustainability goals.

By leveraging a digital thread of information that spans the entire value chain to assess and improve the sustainability of product development and manufacturing processes, organizations are:

  • Poised to weather increasingly volatile supply chains, natural resource costs and consumer demands
  • Minimize the environmental impact and optimize the use of natural resources

Together we craft a strategy that combines the use of innovation practices and digital technologies to realize value for all stakeholders, paving the way to a thriving planet.

Case Study / Melbourne Water: Model Predictive Control for Energy and Water Conservation

  • Conservation — 2 billion liters per year in water savings, exceeding the initial goal

  • Cost savings — ongoing cost savings, and reduced dependence on desalination

  • Compliance — 10% increase in environmental compliance

How We Helped Melbourne Water save billions of liters of water each year with Model Predictive Control

Kalypso and Rockwell Automation worked with Melbourne Water to help regulate water leaving the Thomson Reservoir with increased efficiency and precision.

While the water industry is relatively mature when it comes to automation and system optimization, quality, process variability, outages, and downtime are still persistent challenges.

The complexity of the network, paired with factors like lag time and multiple environmental variables made this system a perfect candidate for Model Predictive Control (MPC).

Our work made it possible to reliably save 2 billion liters of water annually, conserve energy, and reduce strain on the workforce while improving compliance.
