Sustainability as a Business Opportunity


Sustainability is at the forefront of consumer, business and government priorities as we’re all united in a collective responsibility to care for the planet's health for future generations. The global tech industry has come under intense scrutiny for its considerable impact on the planet, accounting for 2-3% of the world's CO2 emissions, according to UN data. 

But as an industry that champions innovation, creativity and rapid pace, there is no better sector primed to provide solutions and demonstrate tangible results. 






 Moving forward together

The power of the individual should not be underestimated, and when we come together, impressive results and change can and will be achieved. Join us as we delve into the creation and delivery of a sustainable strategy, the best practices being implemented and what customers are actively concerned about and are seeking from brands.

We’ll take a deep dive into the legislation that is driving the sustainability agenda forward and how companies can seize sustainability as a business opportunity to grow their organisations. Other topics also include e-mobility, what the Metaverse means for sustainability, the circular economy, supply chains and the integration of sustainable technology into homes/workspaces.
