Smart Sustainability: Decarbonisation, Green IT, and Tackling Energy Costs

22nd March 2023, Stockholm 18:30 - 21:00 CET
In partnership

Dinner Location: Grand Hotel

How can application modernisation, eco-friendly infrastructure, and smarter data management pave the way to decarbonisation?

Good evening! Welcome to this Meet the Boss event in partnership with Hitachi Vantara.

As I’m sure we can all agree, sustainability is a megatrend in the IT sector and organizations around the globe are training their efforts on the data centre – an area filled with challenges and opportunities. Consider that more than 80% of value chain CO2 emissions of a storage product are related to its use after it is sold. For organisations charged with taking carbon out of their business, this figure is illustrative of the task at hand. This is not a production issue in isolation, nor just a usage concern – this is a complete lifecycle challenge. And one in which you will have a crucial role to play.

At this dinner, thought leaders from Hitachi Vantara and esteemed colleagues in IT to discuss what the path to decarbonisation encompasses and requires, from modernisation to automation, cultural commitment to executive buy-in – and so much more.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and providing you with the right discussions to keep you on course, every course.
