Attributing Carbon to the Cloud Roundtable

Wednesday 19 June, 1-3pm (with a sandwich lunch from 12:30)

This roundtable will examine how we can keep track of carbon emissions when we outsource activity to the cloud. Customers are seeking more transparency on carbon associated with the cloud services they procure. This may be because they wish to report scope 3 emissions or because they need to provide robust evidence that outsourcing activities are sustainable. At this roundtable we will seek to establish:

• Where the information gaps exist
• What level of data is needed by customers
• Which guidance materials, tools and services are already available and how applicable they are
• What rules of thumb can be applied to help organisations estimate impacts without resorting to detailed analysis
• Whether there are scenarios and case studies that can inform decision making
• How to access sources of further information

techUK has already produced a draft outline document covering some of the above points and we will use the information from this discussion to develop a complete briefing paper.
