Value Creation Examples

ISO Group

Contributing Source: 2022 Sustainability Report

ISO Group develops and distributes automation equipment for commercial greenhouses and plant nurseries. They have designed products that address labor intensive tasks such as grafting, cutting, and planting, thus reducing human error and enabling customers to focus on more critical tasks. The company is also working on developing robotic harvesters for tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers, which will be supported by AI data solutions to enhance harvest forecasting and propagation information. The payback period for each machine is typically two to four years, and they have a life expectancy of twelve years.

AWM

Contributing Source: 2022 Sustainability Report

AWM provides autonomous retail solutions such as smart shelves and frictionless checkout to help physical retailers integrate the digital transformation. They have developed a product that uses cameras, smart shelves, and sensors to provide data for efficient shelf stacking, inventory management, and logistics optimization. This leads to a reduction of waste and GHG emissions by removing unnecessary transportation. The company expects a 60% reduction in food waste via improved inventory management. During 2021, Verizon trialed AWM’s product and achieved a 100% elimination of overtime and an optimization of staff levels.

Burro

Contributing Source: 2022 Sustainability Report

Burro robots can help farmers by reducing the amount of physically demanding labor needed, while also providing a more consistent result that increases yield efficiency. With a single robot, six to eight people can harvest up to 40% more fruit each day, leading to a payback period of less than three months for the grower. Burro estimates that productivity of harvesting will increase by 50% over the next 5-10 years, supporting farmers in reducing operating costs and increasing productivity. This technology can also help protect local production and upskill laborer's at a reduced cost.
