Is Green Cloud the Silver Lining for your Sustainability Goals?

Hosted by Vanquis Bank, Iridium & Axiologik

A sustainable corporate strategy is no longer an ESG ideal, but an imperative for all companies, with regulators, investors, employees and customers now expecting companies to do more to reduce their carbon footprint and commit to a sustainable future. What’s more, recent statistics show that industries that are embracing and actively working towards combatting climate change are performing more efficiently – and often more profitably – than those that don’t.

Even if sustainability hasn’t been at the heart of your business’s agenda, you may well have already started your incremental journey to carbon neutrality. A migration to the Cloud could have the equivalent impact of removing 22 million cars off the road and continued adoption of Cloud computing can prevent more than one billion metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions between 2021 and 2024.

With sustainability now at the heart of B2C and B2B purchasing decisions, it’s time to recognise how Cloud adoption can significantly help organisations reach their sustainable objectives.

In this intimate session, Cloud transformation experts from leading Fintech Bank, Vanquis, part of the Provident Financial Group, growing IT transformation consultancy, Iridium, and digital transformation firm, Axiologik, share expert guidance on exceeding sustainability goals through the transformation of digital Infrastructure.

If meeting consumer demands, increasing efficiency, attracting talent and creating opportunities is important to you, join Vanquis Bank, Iridium and Axiologik at Leeds Digital Festival for refreshments and invaluable insights that could transform your organisation’s sustainability strategy.
