Why robotic process automation is a key tool for business sustainability practices

raditional IT sustainability initiatives involve implementation of various strategies including low-emission hardware, energy-efficient infrastructure, cloud adoption and efficient equipment recycling. Robotic process automation (RPA) leverages software robots for repetitive tasks, thus emerging as a strategic driver for sustainability. Interestingly, RPA showcases and assists critical environmental applications, ranging from internet of thigs (IoT) integration and clean energy provisioning to COVID-19 detection systems and community engagement for waste reduction, illustrating its diverse and critical role in fostering ecological and social benefits.
