Sustainability has become more than just a buzzword – it's a concept that more and more businesses are embracing as a means to save money and resources while also reducing their environmental footprint. And the information technology (IT) sector is extremely energy-intensive, accounting for 2% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Small wonder that there's a growing demand for IT sustainability professionals across many different businesses and industry sectors.
