Sustainability through the cloud - Sustainability Pillar

Sustainability through the cloud

In addition to minimizing the impact of workloads that you’ve deployed, you can use the AWS Cloud to run workloads designed to support your wider sustainability challenges. Examples of these challenges include reducing carbon emissions, lowering energy consumption, recycling water, or reducing waste in other areas of your business or organization.

Sustainability through the cloud is when you use AWS technology to solve a broader sustainability challenge. For example, you can use a machine learning service like Amazon Monitron to detect abnormal behavior in industrial machinery. Using this detection data, you can conduct preventative maintenance to reduce the risk of environmental incidents caused by unexpected equipment failures and ensure that the machinery continues to operate at peak efficiency.
