Fireside chat: Tackling the environmental impact of growth: Where are the Opportunities and Challenges?
Various initiatives within the UK, Europe and other parts of the world committing the data center industry to carbon neutrality and more transparency has triggered a major response from across the sector. The EU’s Green Deal, UK’s One Government Cloud Strategy, and the US commitments in the Spending Bill are some examples. But how is this going to impact the data center industry over the next few years? What are the Challenges and Opportunities for regulators? How can the industry cope with the growth requirements, in an environmentally sustainable way?
In this fireside chat, Prof Rabih Bashroush, Global Head, IT Infrastructure Advisory at Uptime Institute will speak with Mattie Yeta, Head of Sustainability, IT Defra, UK Government about the challenges and opportunities as well as the lessons learned so far.
