Sustainability and climate change are some of the biggest challenges of our time. ​

​A sustainable business is a viable business - which means considering financial, economic, environmental, and social impacts to steer an organisation holistically for a competitive advantage.​  The best-run organisations of tomorrow will embed sustainability as a new dimension of success and embrace new business models, while delivering a best-in-class customer, citizen and employee experience.

Step through our Sustainability World to explore how a new era of digital innovation can enable a future that looks greener, cleaner, and more equal than the world we live in today.  We will deep-dive into scenarios that look at:​

  • Reduce Emissions – Discover how greater transparency can help measure, calculate, track and report the GHG emission inventories of your organisation, allowing visibiity of carbon footprint down to a granular level and driving climate action.
  • Reduce Waste – See how a rethinking of business processes across the entire value chain, will protect our planet, its species, and our collective prosperity, while creating new business models.
  • Reduce Inequality - As humans responsible for social progress, we must consider all people and communities as we move forward. See how transparency is key to procurement with purpose, and to bring diversity and inclusion to front of mind.
  • Manage Holistically – Discover how managing ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) holistically, brings together financial and non-financial factors for review and analysis, can identify growth opportunities and attract a new generation of stakeholders and investors.  ​​

 

The Labs​

Experience a new kind of exhibit hall - the Labs are an interactive spaces that provide endless opportunities to network with SAP innovation experts.​​ Diving into the future of development, citizen engagement and growth through innovation - The Labs will showcase tangible insights into digital engineering and n-dimentional digital twins, and what they mean for the river city - as well as economic growth throughout Queensland heading into 2032.

 

Brisbane has been announced as the host city for the 2032 Olympic Games. Already a thriving and growing economy, the River City will need to exponentially drive innovation to deliver on the demands of being an Olympic city in 12 years. To do this, infrastructure and the data that supports the building, operation and maintenance of existing and future assets will have to be radically re-imagined. See how digital infrastructure and n-dimensional digital twins will help Brisbane take centre stage and run at it’s best. 

 

Lab 1: Building the Future Brisbane 

A guided tour through a working digital twin of a proposed piece of infrastructure that will be central to Brisbane’s Olympics in 2032.

Lab 2: Operating infrastructure in times of increased demand

See what happens to a major infrastructure plan when timelines and economics change. What is the impact of an unforeseen complication? How could you mitigate the risk and the disruption this has during the Brisbane Olympics?

Lab 3: Maintaining the asset for long term utilization

The impact of being an Olympic city is well known, but how can digitized infrastructure inject new life into assets long term for the community. See how Brisbane can reinvent itself through digital infrastructure management, sustainably while driving long term value for citizens.
