techUK's Cloud Computing Programme is delighted to host an online panel discussion on cloud computing, climate change and sustainability.

This event will take place on 4 May 2022, 14:00-15:00 BST.

With COP26 behind us, investors, governments, and the public are increasingly concerned about how we can meet our climate goals. Now more than ever, businesses will be thinking carefully about their own net-zero strategies and how they can use technology to be more sustainable.

But how can cloud empower UK businesses in the fight against climate change? Moving operations to the cloud means taking advantage of the higher utilisation rates of on-demand infrastructure, more efficient cooling and newer hardware optimised by cloud providers, and the potential for more sustainable, flexible, and resilient supply chains. However, businesses will need to consider carefully how they are managing their use of cloud and optimising workloads to maximise sustainability.

Join us to discuss the potential of cloud computing in enabling a more sustainable net-zero future by registering for this event.

The panel will include:

  • Helen Gerling, CEO of Shaping Cloud
  • Glen Robinson, National Technology Officer for Microsoft UK
  • Gareth Workman, Head of Cloud Practice at Kainos
  • Tanaz Gould, Commercial and Solutions Director at Claranet


This monthly series will showcase the commitment of our members to a more sustainable net-zero future.
