Why precision sustainability?
At Leif Capital, we believe some of today’s most exciting and impactful investment opportunities are to be found in precision sustainability.
There is a precision revolution afoot; in how we optimize the resources we use and re-use, in how we design and manufacture, in how we optimize our supply and distribution chains and above all in how we leverage ubiquitous data gathering and analysis.
Precision manufacturing is enabling sustainable technologies to become more efficient, more cost effective and more scalable. Equally, precision manufacturing is enabling the data revolution which in its turn is making precision manufacturing more effective. A virtuous cycle has been created.
What is precision sustainability?
Here is our Taxonomy of Precision Sustainability:
Our two pillars are in the middle of the graphic, Manufacturing Precision and Organizational and Supply Chain Precision. Manufacturing verticals include Semiconductor, 3D Printing and Cleantech, and we note the importance of an efficient, flexible, and resilient supply chain. Both of our pillars of precision enable sustainability, through technology or supply chain re-organization.
We explore the ‘virtuous relationship’ enjoyed by our pillars of precision and ‘Industry 4.0’ in our report, the latter referring the fourth industrial revolution involving the automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practices.
I very much hope you can join us at the webinar. We'll be publishing a report of the same name, with analysis and case studies, very soon.
