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.

Get involved in our groups

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


Climate Council

The Climate Council is currently focused on COP, 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.


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.


ESG Marketing Forum

This new forum is for techUK members to understand how to communicate their ESG (environmental, social and governance) credentials in an authentic, credible way.


Responsible Business Conduct Group

techUK’s responsible business conduct group monitors the best practice, emerging issues and the evolving policy framework around responsible business conduct, with a particular focus on human rights and environmental supply chain due diligence, ESG reporting, international labour laws and responsible sourcing of materials and minerals.


Sustainability Strategy Forum

A forum looking at broad sustainability topics and for members to come together to discuss how they are factoring in ‘sustainability’ into their operations and decision-making.


Tech Nature and Biodiversity Group

The Tech Nature and Biodiversity Group explores strategies for incorporating biodiversity and nature risks into corporate practices, as well as looks at how technology can be used to prevent and measure biodiversity loss.
