Digital Carbon Footprints

In Climate, Tech With Purpose News by Scott

I’m delighted to be joining this prestigious event to talk about the carbon footprints of our digital lifestyles.

For the past couple of months I have been working on a fascinating report and I am excited to introduce it at this conference.

With the support of the fantastic people at Jisc, I have been able to dig into the increasingly important topic of Digital Carbon Footprints.

Looking at the topic from the point of view of the UK’s higher and further education sector, I’ve discovered how much climate impact social media apps can have, how a few simple changes to both existing and new behaviours can have significant cumulative impact.

There’s so much more in the report, ranging from Scope 3 in procurement, IT circularity, the opaque world of carbon in data storage, emission overheads of Cloud and on-prem, and even the pitfalls of “smart” energy management devices.

Stay tuned for more information about the report, and if you’re able to attend #Networkshop50 I look forward to meeting you then.
