The dematerialization path to profitability and sustainability. The future of enterprises
Imagine walking through the doors of a typical enterprise in the year 2030.
You quickly realize most white-collar employee tasks are aided or automated using artificial intelligence (AI) and data mining. Employees mostly work from home or from locations closer to home, so company premises are smaller and fewer. Businesses have transformed into agile enterprises with global customers and workforces. Many enterprises are showing significant CO2 reductions driven by increased renewable energy usage and dematerialization efforts, including switching from selling physical products and services to digital ones, reduced commuting and traveling, and extensive use of cloud services.
These predictions are based on insights from our IndustryLab research, which examines the future of enterprises, white-collar work and the role of ICT in the next 10 years.
This research was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic. The report reflects on its lasting effects and the future impact on white-collar work.
