Helene Jacquier, IT Sustainability Expert | Infogreen Factory
About this talk
As ESG and CSR strategies begin getting deployed across organisations, IT teams are being given objectives around reducing their greenhouse gas emissions.
The impact of digital services is extremely tangible. For instance, producing equipment requires the extraction of raw materials and is energy-intensive across production, usage and end-of-life. As we work towards our sustainability goals, it's never been more important for IT teams to have a solid grasp of their environmental impacts and to develop new strategies and processes to secure a greener future.
In this session, join Lorraine Le Baud (IT sustainability expert at Infogreen Factory) as she explores:
- The environmental and social impacts of IT
- Approaches to assess your team’s maturity with regards to sustainable IT processes and usages. We will go beyond the carbon footprint and propose a 360° diagnostic, addressing the maturity of IT buying processes, eco-design processes, IT competencies and governance.
- Key deliverables associated to diagnostics, such as the stakeholders mapping, the materiality matrix devoted to IT stakes, diagnostic tools
- A conclusion to open to the Green IT roadmap construction approach.
