Addressing sustainable digital infrastructure

Organisations are committed to creating more sustainable digital infrastructure despite facing challenges in reducing and demonstrating their environmental impact.

Our new Vision for Digital Infrastructure in 2030 Report, surveyed 250 IT decision-makers across various UK industries and the second chapter explores sustainability in digital infrastructure. We found:
