REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, a think tank of global technology leaders and Delphixthe industry leader in DevOps test data management, announced the creation of SustainableIT.orga non-profit organization focused on advancing global sustainability through technology leadership.
“Sustainability is the megatrend of the century,” said Jedidiah Yueh, founding director of SustainableIT.org and founder and CEO of Delphix. “For too long, sustainability has been a problem someone else had to solve. Today, we join forces with technology leaders from the world’s largest organizations to make sustainability our collective problem to solve.
Over the next decade, technological systems will dramatically increase energy consumption and the resulting environmental and carbon impact. And digital transformation programs are increasingly putting consumer data privacy, a major governance concern, at risk.
Yet most organizations define their approach to sustainability independently, without standard metrics and reporting for the three pillars of sustainability: environmental, societal, and governance.
SustainableIT.org will bring together IT leaders and experts from around the world to define best practices and standard metrics for the three pillars of sustainability to drive transparency and progress toward a sustainable future.
“Managers and IT teams want to have more impact on sustainability initiatives. launch SustainableIT.org represents an important moment in time to enable IT to deliver on its promise to not only innovate for the business and our customers, but also to help save the world,” said Brian Kirkland, CIO of Choice Hotels. .
