With debate raging about a “zero carbon” future New Zealand, this interactive seminar will discuss what the tech sector is doing, and what it could be doing, to promote a more sustainable New Zealand and a “circular economy”. Our Paris commitments to mitigate climate change will soon kick in. Are New Zealand tech companies part of the problem, or part of the solution?
Some of the specific topics to be covered are:
- Network efficiency and emissions;
- Cloud computing;
- Remote working & decentralisation;
- Product stewardship and the “circular economy”; and
- Alternative energy
