How Green is our Digital?

Monday 24 February 2020

The Microsoft Reactor - 70 Wilson Street, London, England, EC2A 2DB

Technology and sustainability - working together for a carbon neutral tomorrow

Join UKAuthority at the Microsoft Reactor in London for a day exploring how public services can harness technology to both reduce the carbon footprint of their organisation and the services they deliver, and improve the environment for our communities.

This event is for the UK public sector only 

Hosted by Microsoft we will discuss the results of our UKAuthority survey across local government about the use of technology as a tool for sustainability. We will hear from expert speakers and those delivering ground breaking innovation, before working together to identify an action plan: what steps can we take today to reduce the carbon footprint of our technology and use technology to reduce the organisation's carbon footprint - and what can we do to accelerate this action into the future?
