Sustainability by Design

A series of deep dives focusing on how Digital Leaders can drive a sustainability culture in their organisations.

In the first session, we explored where Australian organisations are taking action, and where we are at risk of being left behind in the latest global wave of change.

In this session we explore the key elements that organisations should consider for sustainable IT and the role that CIO’s play.

  • What are the key drivers and benefits?
  • Developing business cases and gaining approval for investment in projects with long term benefits can be difficult but is the focus in the board room changing?

In future sessions, we will examine how important design thinking, procurement, agility, culture, service delivery, IT structures and other technology strategies are in a CIO’s contribution to sustainability.


To learn, from peers, about the benefits gained from the investment of time and resources in sustainability initiatives. To explore how were these sold to the C-Suite or Board.

Develop a practical “shopping list” of innovations that we could explore in more detail in later sessions or by connecting CIONET members in special interest groups.

In breakout sessions, participants will be able to share what is happening in their organisations and learn from their peers.
