Accelerating towards net zero: How technology enables sustainability transformations

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
