Natural History Museum

On 24th October 2019, we welcomed to London’s prestigious Natural History Museum over 200 representatives of information technologies (IT) from some of the world’s most high profile organisations. Our initiative brought together businesses, NGO’s, academia and policy makers in a joint ambition to making the UK’s information technology (IT) sector more sustainable. Our first step towards knowledge sharing, we published the industry guide to sustainable ICT detailing how businesses can use IT to align their work with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).
