Sustainability means many things. Reasons for the ICT sector to be sustainable include reducing carbon emissions, adapting to climate change, managing scarce material resources and minimising waste. Wales, as well as declaring a Climate Emergency, is leading the world with sustainable development legislation through the introduction of the Future Generations Act.
But what does it all mean for the IT profession, and you?
How could/should the IT profession be responding to “#climateemergency”? Is that it or are their other aspects of sustainability to be aware of and ready for?
