The Social Efficiency Dividend

By Carol Baroudi, Arrow Electronics

“Growth” is every company’s goal—including Arrow’s. But it’s also a word that can send shivers down the spines of the sustainability-minded.

So you can imagine my delight when an IDC analyst proposed growing economically by tackling waste.

2015 spotlighted the IoT journey with the rise of connected cars, homes, and machinery.

2015 was a big year.
