Digital Green Innovation Management for Industry 5.0

The topic encapsulates a forward-looking approach to industrial practices, blending the transformative power of digital technologies with a strong emphasis on environmental sustainability. In the context of Industry 5.0, which represents the next evolution in manufacturing marked by human-machine collaboration and smart, interconnected systems, the focus on "digital green innovation management" becomes pivotal. This concept revolves around leveraging digital tools and strategies to drive innovation in a manner that not only enhances industrial productivity but also prioritizes ecological responsibility. Businesses are urged to adopt practices that minimize environmental impact, reduce carbon footprints, and promote sustainable development. Embracing this paradigm shifts the traditional industrial landscape towards a more conscientious and eco-friendly future, aligning technological advancements with global efforts to address environmental challenges. As we navigate the Industry 5.0 era, the integration of digital solutions with green innovation management emerges as a strategic imperative for fostering a harmonious balance between industrial progress and ecological preservation.

The convergence of digital innovation management with a green ethos in Industry 5.0 is crucial for several compelling reasons. Firstly, it addresses the growing environmental concerns by instilling eco-friendly practices within industrial processes. As industries contribute significantly to global carbon emissions, adopting sustainable strategies becomes imperative for mitigating climate change impacts. Secondly, integrating digital technologies not only enhances operational efficiency but also enables precise monitoring and optimization of resources, further minimizing waste and energy consumption. Thirdly, embracing a digital green approach fosters corporate social responsibility, meeting the expectations of an environmentally conscious consumer base. This not only enhances brand reputation but also positions businesses as proactive contributors to a sustainable future. Ultimately, the synergy between digital and green innovations in Industry 5.0 not only aligns with global sustainability goals but also presents a strategic advantage by future-proofing businesses in a world increasingly valuing environmental responsibility.

We welcome theoretical and empirical contributions that explore the transformational opportunities and challenges for Industry 5.0 across the following themes:

  • Smart Manufacturing and Automation: The integration of digital technologies and sustainable practices to drive innovation in various industries
  • Sustainable Supply Chain: Adoption of green logistics and transportation practices to reduce the environmental impact
  • Digital Twin Technology: Implementation of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) for enhanced maintenance, training, and troubleshooting
  • Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI): Utilization of big data analytics to gain insights into green production processes and consumer behaviour
  • Consumer-Centric Innovation: Implementation of customization and personalization in green products and services

These themes collectively contribute to the vision of Industry 5.0, which emphasizes the harmonious integration of digital technologies, sustainability, and human-centric approaches to drive innovation and productivity in industries.
