Digital Sustainability

Digital technologies have an important role to play in combatting climate change, from facilitating greener transport networks to making agriculture more sustainable and providing early warning systems for extreme weather events.

Yet, the energy consumption of digital technology itself is rapidly increasing and the amount of e-waste generated annually is expected to grow to 74.7 Mt by 2030.

Do you want to understand what the carbon footprint of your digital solutions is? And how best to reduce it? For example, what the environmental impact of the different hosting options is? Or how carefully choosing your training data for machine learning projects will save energy?

Our Digital Sustainability services support you in designing, developing and deploying solutions that are not only cutting-edge but also environmentally conscious.
