Climate, Environment and Sustainability

We believe that digital technology offers significant opportunities to support the net zero transition, climate adaptation, and a healthy 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 to realise the positive benefits of tech as we transition to more sustainable systems and business models.
