Andy Nolan, Director of Emerging Technologies, Thoughtworks
For many companies, “going green” is no longer an option - it’s a business imperative. While organizations have adopted ambitious carbon neutral goals and the like, many are still wrestling with how to transform their operations to improve sustainability performance - especially when there’s no standard playbook to follow.
While the term itself implies an end point, sustainability transformation is better viewed as an evolutionary process and it requires investing in people, processes and technology to embed sustainability in every function of your business.
Technology enables sustainability transformations to help businesses find new opportunities and avenues for growth, but it also presents challenges. So how can you leverage it to drive smarter action that captures value from your sustainability efforts and create competitive advantage?
In this talk we will discuss:
The role of technology in sustainability transformation
Challenges of measuring emissions in the physical and digital supply chain
Tools and methodologies for optimizing operations and reducing emissions
Getting started with a sustainability transformation self assessment
The By Thoughtworks event tech-talk series is a community forum to share industry thinking about emerging technical trends, and -- as always -- inspire debate and conversation.
You’ll find an open, comfortable environment for technologists to meet and discuss recent developments in the tech world, projects that both inspire and challenge, and how to stay on top of the ever-shifting tech landscape.
We invite you to join our groups in your local city so you can be kept informed on upcoming events, happening every 6 weeks.
