Launched in November 2022, ‘Net Zero: A Digital Journey’ is a digital series exploring the instrumental role of the IT industry in responding to the climate crisis; delivering digital solutions to support mitigation and adaptation, whilst embedding sustainability into its own practices.
Created in partnership with BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, the series features interviews, podcasts, short films and a documentary.
Recent years have witnessed a surge in digital technology innovations to support a net zero future; but with climate change representing an unprecedented global threat, more must be done to harness the transformative potential of IT and digital professionals to secure a positive future for the environment and society. At the same time, the industry itself must accelerate the reduction of its own environmental impact.
In a journey of discovery, the series meets AI innovators, e-waste pioneers, leaders in sustainable data centres, computer scientists harnessing big data and many others who are driving innovation, collaboration and research in pursuit of net zero.
The series features comment from industry experts including Rashik Parmar MBE, Group CEO of BCS, Ben Tongue, Digital Net Zero Lead at NHS England, and Professor Penny Endersby, Met Office Chief Executive, and tells the stories of inspirational individuals and organisations across the digital technology community, who are transforming every industry and shaping our response to the climate crisis.
