Summit 2022:
Advancing Technologies Towards A Sustainable Future

As the world emerges from the pandemic, we are already seeing more global economies opening up their borders and reining in on their businesses as they gain ground. As semiconductors continue to power technologies to support the growing global climate goals such as solar panels and electric vehicles, the use of chips will accelerate. These chips however, have a debilitating effect on the climate as they require a significant amount of carbon footprint as they require a massive amount of energy and water and other hazardous by-products that will contribute to climate change. This contradicts what the industry has endeavoured to achieve in a sustainable future.

In this respect, SSIA Summit 2022 will tackle this important contradiction and explore how the industry can pivot to balance both business and the environment. And how companies can do more to reduce their carbon footprints with the current programs already in place. Hence, the Summit will address the critical topic of advancing technology in a responsible and yet sustainable way to support the growth of the industry.

Thought leaders and experts will come together once again to present and discuss strategies and new technologies on this area and work towards our goal of a greener and larger industry with minimal carbon footprint.
