About the Event

Sustainability Conference 2023: Digitally sustainable – Data, devices, and durable solutions for our planet

Have you wondered how green your digital solutions are? Considered how friendly your data storage is to the environment? Been questioned how reusable, upgradeable, and recyclable your laptops are?

We will bring these themes, and more, into focus at the inaugural Sustainability Group Conference 2023, the first UCISA conference to bring sustainability in our digital workplace onto the centre stage. With growing global concern for our environment, from ever increasing pollution of our surroundings, loss of biodiversity and greenhouse gas emissions heating up our planet, we know action is needed. Technology can be part of the solution, but we also need to recognise it as part of the problem with E-waste being the fastest growing waste problem in the world.

In this conference we will explore:

  • Strategies for sustainable data storage
  • Carbon accounting for procurement
  • Managing your devices in a greener way
  • Sustainable learnings from the pandemic

You will hear from inspirational speakers who are passionate about making the technology solutions we help create, support, change and enhance, better for our physical environment and our societies whilst, of course, ensuring whatever we do stack up financially. The conference aims to inspire you with great stories, thought provoking facts and useful tips, helping you to make sustainability a core theme for all the services you provide for your organisation.

Have a good tale to tell about your now greener data centre? A great description of your more environmentally friendly device management? How you are procuring services from suppliers with sustainable credentials? Share your story with colleagues at the conference by presenting (15-20 mins) or by being part of a panel, contact us at events@ucisa.ac.uk.

Join us for a UCISA first – The Sustainability conference in June 2023!
