Bestinau got that-

Newly announced ESG sessions with industry leaders from Kerlink, Microshare, Microsoft, CBRE and the EU Commission; Added speakers from Tata Communications and the Helium Foundation (Helium).

The LoRa Alliance®, the global association of companies supporting the open LoRaWAN® standard for Internet of Things (IoT) low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs), today announced the comprehensive program for the LoRaWAN World Expo, which takes place at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, July 6-7, 2022.

New additions to the program focus on why LoRaWAN is the leading LPWAN to support enterprise environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices while delivering a strong return on investment (ROI).

“Global demand for LoRaWAN solutions has exploded, in part to meet ESG requirements,” said Donna Moore, CEO and president of the LoRa Alliance.

“Automated alerts triggered by analysis of the data LoRaWAN collects create significant opportunities for resource conservation, predictive maintenance and safety, as well as waste reduction, to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our resources.”

“LoRaWAN is the most widely used LPWAN solution because the market trusts the technology, which has global network availability, the ability to roam globally and delivers significant cost savings.”

LoRaWAN’s growth has been driven in large part by the acceleration of digital transformation, which has moved from nice-to-have to necessity in businesses and cities worldwide, fueled by the lessons learned from COVID-19. In short, digitization has become crucial for providing safe environments, for the health, well-being and safety of our citizens and the planet.

Moore continued, “Whether you’re just starting your IoT journey or deeply involved in implementations, join us to see how LoRaWAN is positively impacting our lives and the health of the planet, and driving business efforts in these areas. The LoRaWAN World Expo is the best opportunity in 2022 to hear from the brightest minds in the IoT industry and network with LoRaWAN market leaders. With a focus on social responsibility, participants will discover how LoRaWAN is profitable for their businesses, beneficial to the global community and a means to become better corporate citizens.”

While LoRaWAN already supports people, planet and profit, the LoRa Alliance recognizes its growth potential and is pleased to have leveraged this theme during many of the sessions during the Expo. According to the World Economic Forum’s Internet of Things Sustainability Guidelines report, 84% of IoT deployments currently meet, or have the potential to address, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Expo’s environmental sustainability sessions cover a wide range of topics around smart farming and irrigation, smart buildings and cities, climate change and its impact on the environment, disaster prevention and the green new deal, as well as conservation. A number of sessions will focus on societal considerations such as healthcare, aged care, occupational safety, heritage preservation and more. Finally, representatives from think tanks and governmental organizations such as Arcep, ITU-T and the European Union Commission for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth will discuss key considerations for LoRaWAN and how it relates to governance.
