With the effects of climate change rapidly increasing, organizations and governments alike are placing their sustainability activities higher in their priorities’ agendas. Strong and sustained action from private actors to reduce their environmental impact is key to achieving a better, more sustainable future.
Within this context, digital technologies can and need to do more. The role of the ICT sector has never been more crucial to enable a sustainable digital transformation and develop solutions to turn ambitions into tangible actions.
With this event we aim at:
- Conveying the message that for real objectives to be reached, sustainability needs to become part of a company’s DNA and a central part of an organization’s culture, strategy, and leadership. With more and more consumers choosing to support businesses with sustainable missions, sustainability can’t be an afterthought or a just a box to be ticked for their branding needs. Sustainability needs to be embedded in every decision and fostered by every employee.
- Showing through data and real-life examples that sustainability is good for business. Building a company around sustainable and ethical processes can reduce costs and attract more customers. In addition to profit margins, what separates purpose-driven businesses from the rest are longevity, loyalty, and meaningful business growth.
- Presenting the leadership guiding the post-pandemic sustainability agenda to achieve 2030 climate targets. Leadership in the ICT sector requires a new agenda and dedication to lead on universal commitments, build impact transparency across the sectors through meaningful partnerships, address negative externalities and operate responsibly.
