Climate Change Benefits from The Circular Economy

Meanwhile, the circular economy is a key sustainability strategy adopted by industry leaders in their efforts to achieve progress.

Moreover, the ongoing transformation to an 'Anywhere Workspace' will drive strategic IT spending and advance cloud-based SaaS adoption.
