Digital twins: Enabling a sustainable future

By simulating real-world conditions in real time, digital twins help optimize resource usage, reduce carbon emissions, and improve supply and transportation networks. They also provide insights into product behavior, and facilitate development of sustainable materials. You might say digital twins are a win-win.
