Computing Tech Impact Hub

Climate change is a major theme for the tech industry, and will only become more important as time goes on. Use this hub to stay up to date on all the major green IT developments and announcements.

Time to step up

Technology has tremendous power to reshape the world for the better.

That's why we are delighted to launch a new campaign drawing attention to the climate challenges we face as a species, and highlighting and honouring those end-users and vendors working to save the planet using technology. The world is in trouble, but with sustained and cooperative action, we can save it.

The Computing Tech Impact campaign will run throughout 2021 and beyond, including a virtual conference later this year.
