Sustainable IT

IT is the fastest growing carbon stream in the world.

Let's Change That

Don’t be Carbon Complacent

The technology and telecom sector generates an estimated 5% of global CO2 emissions, double aviation. This figure is set to surge to as much as 14% by 2040. If we continue on this path, we will irreparably damage the ecosystems that support our very existence. Sustainable IT is not a mere option; it's an imperative.

Are you Carbon Curious?

The complex technology we use today requires many components. The resources for these parts are mined at locations all over the world. Did you know that an estimated 7% of the world's gold might currently reside in eWaste? Yet, constantly creating new products strains our precious resources and isn't sustainable.

Not only is this waste bad for the environment, but eWaste poses significant health risks, as its toxic elements seep into the soil and air, even infiltrating the food chain. Extending technology's lifespan is crucial to reducing this hazardous waste.

Sustainable IT is about reusing and redeploying the technology we already have to maximise its use, save resources and reduce C02 emissions.
