*NEW RESEARCH* Making a Difference with SustainabilityTech

The stark warning from the science community is that we have less than 10 years to halve greenhouse gas emissions and avoid global warming of above 1.5° - anything above this will cause dangerous impacts to kick in. Technology is part of the problem, but can also contribute to efforts to reduce human impact on the environment. 

Making a Difference with SustainabilityTech report coverWhether it’s described as GreenTech or SustainabilityTech, the purpose is the same: the use of technology to enable individuals, organisations and governments to meet sustainability objectives. In the context of this background, there is a growing role for IT suppliers to provide the tools and solutions to facilitate the protection, conservation and replenishment of natural resources and the environment; the reduction or mitigation of negative impacts from human activity; and the drive towards more sustainable ways of living through reuse and renewables.

The just published Making a Difference with SustainabilityTech research note provides a snapshot of this fast moving sector, gauging current activity among UK sustainability-focused  startups and the innovative solutions they bring to tackle real problems. It also explores the industry sectors targeted and the types of technology – and technology combinations - being applied.

As well as being necessary for the planet, increasing activity around IT-supported sustainability is opening up new business opportunities for software and services suppliers. A credible sustainability approach will help attract new and retain existing clients, the lack of one carries the very real risk losing them.
