How CIOs are improving sustainability within their IT environments
IT business leaders explain how they're looking to improve the sustainability of their IT investments
Amongst a backdrop of rising temperatures and wildfires in the Arctic circle, in May 2019, the UK government declared an official climate emergency. Research shows that without sustainability efforts in place the IT industry is set to account for 20 percent of electricity demand by 2025 and 5.5 percent of the world’s carbon emissions.
Consequently, CIOs are uniquely positioned to help limit the industry’s carbon footprint and set an example to their peers by implementing and championing sustainable tech within their organisation. Here are four IT business leaders who have already taken the initiative and are making sustainable IT investments.
