Elevating operational and sustainability performance

Organizations in the petrochemical and refining industries are looking to achieve the lowest carbon-index score feasible, an objective that is increasingly driven by shareholders who’re driving more ambitious sustainability targets. This shift in focus is also reflected in the investment landscape, where access to capital by conventional facilities is becoming harder to secure, as investors prioritize projects that contribute to the energy transition.

As a result, these plants and refineries face the concurrent challenge of minimizing carbon emissions and maintaining profitability. To address these challenges effectively requires technology that can enable smarter and faster decision-making.
