Targets of this goal
By 2030, it is necessary to achieve the following targets:
- Achieve sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources
- Reduce food waste by 50% from a consumer, production and supply perspectives.
- Ecologically and rationally managing chemical and waste products and reducing release of pollutants
- Reduce waste generation: prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse
- Ensure people's access to information and knowledge about sustainable development
We can currently advance towards the attainment of this goal:How does technology contribute to this SDG? See what we propose and tell us what you think
We have analyzed the literature and extracted the following ideas on how technologies are favouring this SDG.
See also what we propose and tell us what you think
AI, together with IoT and data mining can be used to create digital models of production processes that allow making adjustments and new more sustainable production schemes
Sensor networks will allow micro-management of resources minimizing losses
Data analysis techniques can be used to study sustainable consumption patterns
The use of blockchain will facilitate the exchange of information and its transparency, increasing consumer confidence in the sustainability practices implemented by producers.
The proposed actions on which we introduce an opinion poll for this SDG, are described below:
Poll for SDG-12
The analyses of interrelationships between emerging technologies & AI, and the possibilities they offer to pursue the SDGs, led us to propose a series of actions and/or potential projects to develop.
Among these recommendations, which one is more important in your opinion?
R12.2 - Big data and artificial intelligence on data series of production processes and consumption patterns
R12.3 - Digital twins that allow the study of sustainability and "virtual" experimentation on production processes
R12.4 - Augmented reality to inform consumers of sustainability aspects related to the products they consume
R12.5 - Decision support systems, recommender systems and blockchain to improve sustainability in production processes and greater transparency in communication between producers and consumers
