This IDC Market Perspective examines the impact of the Internet of Things on European organizations' attainment of sustainable and social goals. It highlights IoT use cases that contribute to circular economy adoption, social welfare, and environmental sustainability. It also examines the ways in which policy makers can assist in the use of IoT to achieve sustainability objectives."Sustainability is gaining support within senior executives in many organizations. According to a survey among nearly 700 organizations in Europe conducted by IDC, almost two-thirds of European businesses pointed out that sustainability was a very or extremely important business priority for 2020. IoT brings a variety of benefits that include greater efficiency, improved safety and healthcare, and more sustainable development," said Marta Mu?oz M?ndez-Villamil, IDC European Technology for Sustainability Practice lead.
