What will it take for the CIO community to take
this issue seriously? How can technology help address the problem?
According to the International Energy Agency, data centres alone could be responsible for 3.2% of global carbon emissions by 2025. Taking all aspects of IT into account, this may be 5% or more. But where does sustainability sit within the CIO’s agenda this year? According to CIONET research it does not even feature in the top ten list of CIO priorities for many members. Perhaps the reason is that sustainability is important but not urgent?
Our forthcoming event addresses this issue head-on by considering what the IT organisation can do to put its own house in order, and how it might help its parent organisation meet net-zero goals. We will address:
We are delighted to stage seven uniquely qualified experts on this topic including:
1. Robbert Van Rutten ( Senior Vice President & Downstream CIO at Shell )
2. Keric Morris (Global Sustainability Strategy Leader at IBM )
3. Andrew Brammer ( Director - IT and Shared Services at Allen and Overy )
4. Donovan Justice ( Partner, Digital Engineering, Digital Detox at EY UK )
5. Ainslie beattie ( Oracle Consulting Technology Sustainability Lead at Oracle )
6. Marco Mancuso (EMEA Head of Strategic Collaborations at Hitachi Vantara )
