Information and Communications Technology, data and call centres use large amounts of energy. As high energy costs grip Australia’s eastern and southern states, technology businesses need both a risk-managed approach to contracting energy supply to secure the best possible prices, terms and conditions, and a plan to improve energy efficiency.
Technology giants such as Google, Microsoft, IBM and Apple are amongst leading businesses supporting the Paris Climate Agreement. They are pursuing carbon neutrality and renewable energy targets, and increasingly they are positioned at the forefront of data-driven low carbon technology solutions. We expect to see more from this sector as the world works to meet its Paris commitments.
