Embracing Sustainable IT
Med: Guy Long, Senior Cloud Advisor på Eviden
IT infrastructure contributes 3% of global carbon emissions, with AI potentially adding 4% but also saving 4% through efficiencies.
Today’s decisions will shape our future, so we must use data to set targets and take action.
Modernizing IT services can deliver significant positive impact, with cloud migration being essential. As governments may soon mandate targets, businesses slow to react could struggle to compete.
GreenOps and sustainability can benefit the environment while offering new capabilities.
At Eviden, we focus on delivering sustainability rather than just talking about it.
