Over 70% of IT leaders say reducing environmental impact is a priority for their organisation’s technology strategy. With investors, employees and customers alike seeking out businesses that have demonstrably reduced their carbon footprint; a successful sustainability agenda is a business imperative as well as an ethical one, but it can’t come at the expense of all of or compete with the other business priorities people and organisations are facing. It has to be additive to make sense for the top line and the bottom line. 

With many businesses and nations committed to net-zero by 2030, time is running out to prove progress towards these goals. With only one technology refresh cycle realistically feasible before 2030, the decisions IT leaders make now will be crucial to their organisation’s success. But against a backdrop of geopolitical uncertainty, economic turbulence and fast-paced digital transformation projects, technology leaders are challenged by how to grow their digital capabilities without undermining their organisation’s sustainability goals.

To address this challenge, Chief Disruptor and Equinix, the world leading digital infrastructure company, are hosting a series of intimate invite only roundtables to discuss how to accelerate and deliver both digital transformation AND sustainability objectives. Here’s a preview of what to expect: 


Location Matters. Where you house your infrastructure really matters – find out why?

Modernisation Matters. Cloud, network, hybrid, hyperconverged – which strategies should you deploy?

Consumption Model Matter. As a service everything – spin it up, dial it down only when you need it and don’t own any of it... Can it really be done?

Being Purposeful Matters. How being purposeful about sustainability as a fundamental tenant of any digital transformation project helps break down silos and accelerates decision making and goal achievement

Measurability Matters. Why working with the right partners is so crucial in your ability to manage regulation and legislation.

This is your personal invite to join one of our virtual deep dive sessions on Friday mornings throughout November and December to accelerate your journey to sustainable digital transformation. Bring your most pressing digital transformation challenges to the table, troubleshoot with our experts and walk away with an actionable plan to accelerate your journey to sustainable digital transformation.
