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.

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

Climate Strategy and Resilience Council

The Climate Strategy and Resilience Council provides strategic direction for techUK’s climate programme, ensuring that it accurately reflects members’ priorities. It is currently focused on COP26, the sector’s transition to net zero, the role of tech in supporting other sectors in transitioning to net zero and the sector’s preparedness for future climate change.

Climate Strategy and Resilience Group

The Climate Strategy and Resilience Group is a virtual group that keeps members informed of the latest developments, activities and opportunities relating to climate and tech.

Digital Devices Environment Group

The Digital Device Environment Group is the forum for techUK members responsible for the environmental management of digital devices being sold on the UK market. It is focused on the circular economy (reuse, remanufacture, repair of devices), eco-design, energy labelling, the circular economy and the sound management of devices once they become waste.

Environment Strategy and Policy Group

The Environmental Policy and Strategy Group is a virtual group that provides members with the latest news, information and developments relating to the environment and tech.


Quantum computing has been identified as a key emerging and transformative technology that will have an impact on the UK’s long term digital and economic future. In the coming years, Quantum will have the potential to enable smart cities, revolutionise healthcare systems and drive innovation in key industries. To prepare for this future techUK believes now is the time to bring the wider technology sector into the discussion about the UK’s quantum future and how we plan for success.

Mobilise - Transforming Transport Through Tech | 29 March | Free for techUK members

Mobilise is techUK’s flagship future of transport and mobility conference. This year, it will bring together public and private sector leaders to discuss how we can deliver long-term multi-stakeholder projects that harness the power of technology within transport.

This conference is for public sector leaders in transport and infrastructure using technology to improve services, including infrastructure managers, local authorities and government departments. The event is also especially relevant to technology suppliers with products, services and solutions in transport, as well as mobility operators and logistics companies.
