Climate tech

Digital climate tech is emerging as a key enabler in the path to net zero and can deliver 15% of the emission reductions needed in the UK by 2030. Further our sector is playing a key role in helping others anticipate and manage unavoidable climate change. Our work shines a spotlight on the role of digital technologies in helping to respond to the climate crisis, and we work in partnership with both government and industry to help realise their potential.

Get involved

All techUK's work is led by our members - keep in touch or get involved by joining one of the programmes below.

Climate, Environment and Sustainability

We believe that digital tech offers significant opportunities to support the net zero transition, climate adaptation and a heathy and clean environment. We also recognise our own climate and environmental impact, as well as the human rights risks in the tech supply chain, and work closely with members, government, regulators and stakeholders to try and address these and realise the positive benefits of digital tech to be realised as we transition to more sustainable systems and business models.

Data Centres

Data centres provide the core infrastructure that underpins all digital activity across government, business and community. techUK’s award-winning programme provides a collective voice for UK operators. We work with government to improve the business environment for our members. To date we’ve saved UK operators over £150M, alerted them to business risks, mitigated regulatory impacts and raised awareness, most recently negotiating key worker status for the sector. 

Smart Infrastructure and Systems

Our Smart Infrastructure and Systems Programme is the champion for smart infrastructure deployment and governance in the UK, and the economic and societal benefits that smart technologies can deliver. We focus on the innovative application of emerging technologies to traditional forms of infrastructure (such as mobility, energy, water, and the connected home), bringing expert communities together to consider how to reduce costs, increase efficiency and resilience, and deliver better performance.

Become a techUK member

Our members develop strong networks, build meaningful partnerships and grow their businesses as we all work together to create a thriving environment where industry, government and stakeholders come together to realise the positive outcomes tech can deliver.
