The industrial metaverse has the potential to simultaneously improve supply chain resilience, business efficiency, and sustainability. When an organization manufactures or moves goods, it leaves behind a carbon footprint. The Industrial Metaverse enables endless simulation of manufacturing processes and supply chain scenarios in the cloud before products are manufactured or moved. As a result, we can produce better products more efficiently and sustainably while reducing waste, water consumption and carbon footprint.
