WEBINAR: Sustainable IT Purchasing Trends and the Road Forward
DATE: 19 of May
TIME: 15.00 CEST
IT products come with social and environmental challenges. The linear take-use-waste model creates pollutants and depletes natural resources, affecting both human health and the environment.
Join us to explore the issues and get some inspiration on how you can take action for more sustainable IT in your organization.
This year’s theme of EU Green Week is ‘Towards a Zero Pollution Ambition for Air, Water and Soil’. We have asked what that means for IT products and specifically the important role purchasers and policymakers play in making an impact. Join our purchaser engagement experts as we discuss this topic, along with current trends and the road forward in creating a more sustainable approach to IT products.
What are the main environmental impacts connected to IT products? Do the challenges and priorities for purchasers differ depending on where in the world we are? What role can procurement play to drive improvement and what are the future impact areas when it comes to more sustainable IT products?
Dialogue has the power to inspire and pave the way for action. Join us and hear straight from our experts from markets across the globe. Ask questions and share your own experiences and observations when dealing with IT sustainability.
