P&G Unveils Energy Innovation Hub
Procter & Gamble hopes to increase its development of intelligent supply chain operations through its new Product Supply Innovation Center.
The German-based center, located in the Rhine-Main region, will act as a hub for local suppliers, tech companies, R&D institutions and universities to collaborate on ways to decarbonize supply chains. Key topics within the partnership-focused environment will include things like cyber-physical systems, internet of things connectivity and ubiquitous intelligence across materials, assets and processes.
Innovations developed within the hub will be disseminated globally for P&G’s 200 sites to guide sustainability progress and contribute to the company’s goal of cutting emissions across operations by 50% before 2030.
“I am very excited to head the new Product Supply Innovation Center in Kronberg, bringing together our best talent from different continents, new talent and partners from across our ecosystem,” Angelique Terrien, senior director of supply chain innovation and sustainability engineering at Procter & Gamble, said in a statement. “Still, the pressing challenges in sustainability can only be solved through the power of partnerships and collaborative action. I’m looking forward in joining forces with our ecosystem partners to pool resources, new technologies, reach and knowledge to define together what the supply chain of the future will look like. We look forward to collaborating using our combined expertise and capacities to drastically reduce GHG emissions, water consumption and waste production toward net zero solutions we can scale in our operations. With the opening of our Product Supply Innovation Center (PSIC) we hope to inspire change beyond the Rhine-Main-region, Germany and our company and help improve and redefine global processes for production, logistics and retail.”
