Sustainability with Cloud Services

Towards digital sobriety

The global warming and the rise of conscious of sustainability within customers, employees and investors push all the companies to both reshape their business with sustainable approach at core and establish ESG practices. While technology is a key enabler of sustainable products and services, the tech sector generates 4% of carbon emissions and consumes 2,5% of the energy in the world.

According to IDC Global 2022 Future of Digital Infrastructure Survey, 83% of respondents agree sustainability is the most important criteria in IT buying decisions. Among alternatives, IT-as-a-service models powered by Cloud solutions brings opportunity to improve data centre, platform, network, and device carbon footprint thanks to industrial approach based on Reuse, Resale, Recycle principles. They also simplify companies’ investment strategy and facilitate the entire lifecycle of assets.

Despite these strong calls for action, standards and market offering, Digital and IT organisations are often in the blind spot of sustainable programs. Measuring its footprint, developing tangible improvement plan, and orchestrating holistic sustainable changes are complex processes, requesting multiple expertise, practices and new tools.
