Despite widespread recognition of the significant impact IT makes on the environment, enterprise IT has yet to step up and turn the tide. Sustainable IT is the solution.From user devices to data centers and networks, the technology powering business today has a significantly high carbon footprint. Further, its energy consumption is expected to increase three-fold from 2010 to 2025. However, with a clear global imperative to halt climate change across all areas of business and society, IT leaders must both reduce their carbon footprint and become an enabler of positive climate action initiatives across the organization.
CIOs and sustainability leaders need to turn the tide on global CO2 emissions by reducing the carbon footprint of enterprise IT and accelerating the transformation into Sustainable IT.
At Capgemini Invent, we call this a transformation into Sustainable IT. It is much more than a technology and operations domain; it goes beyond structurally transforming IT in terms of consumption habits and ways of working, to embrace the whole culture of Sustainable IT and getting employees to champion this transformation.
Our approach is built on the four pillars of:
Sustainability is at the core of our purpose. As an organization, we have set our own ambitious target of achieving net-zero emissions by 2030. Further, we are already working with our clients to help them reduce their own carbon emissions and we aim to help them save 10 million tons of carbon by 2030. Our Sustainable IT services are at the core of our portfolio of offers in this ambition to support clients and shape a sustainable future.

Beyond the obvious and crucial reduction in IT’s impact on the environment, Sustainable IT brings several important business benefits. Final decisions on forging ahead with projects and business opportunities are increasingly being made in favor of vendors with a track record of sustainability engagements in their own businesses, giving them a concrete competitive edge and driving revenue.
With 31 percent of consumers expecting companies to act in accordance with social and environmental issues, Sustainable IT can also strengthen brand image. And it can be a lever for attracting talent and building the loyalty and motivation of employees wishing to find meaning in their work and have a positive impact on our world.
IT leaders have an opportunity to propose innovative solutions that reduce environmental impact to both the business and their customers. An environment-focused approach based on IT policy frugality (e.g., rationalization, sharing and reducing volume density) drives operational efficiency, while reducing the environmental impact.
Finally, the cost implications of Sustainable IT make a solid business case. Savings on energy bills alone of 20-40 percent can be achieved via eco designed products, less energy intensive services, and a responsible IT policy.
