The acceleration toward digitalization implies the revision of processes involving the entire chain. Cybersecurity, data fog, data ownership, privacy, and AI are revolutionizing the world as we know it, to the point of generating new needs in terms of products and technologies, as well as developing new consumer behaviors. The metaverse further accelerates this process. Consumers are more aware of environmental and other sustainability-related issues, an issue to which more and more attention is being shifted when making purchasing decisions. The digitization of data, interchanges, and the use of digital twins for process efficiency make a real contribution to reducing the environmental impact of any production process.
