ENERGY - SUMMIT

Energy Summit:
Tranforming technology in a sustainable world

15 - 17th June 2022, America 09:00 - 12:40 EST

Energy Summit

Increasingly competitive ESG Benchmarks mean that organizations need innovation to provide profitable sources of sustainable energy. Despite making bold claims publicly, many organisations actions reflect uncertainty around the business case for transition, particularly as they enjoy bumper profits. Without this clear direction from boards, IT has the opportunity to drive their teams forward and foster innovation cultures around sustainability.
