In the Competition for Best Sustainability Practices, Tech Plays a Key Role

November 5th, 2015

With the potentially pivotal UN Climate Change Conference just weeks away, I’m seeing more and more governments — large and small — lead sustainability practices by example:

In each case, success owes in part — in major or minor ways — to the Tech Industry’s hotly competitive pursuits in materials-and-energy-efficient hardware, software that drives sustainable practices, generation of alternative energy, sensors that minimize use of resources, manufacturing processes that reduce waste, remediation technologies for righting past pollution, and more.

The better the Tech Industry embeds Design-for-Environment principles in every product, measures and improves sustainability with objective Life Cycle Assessments, and uses responsible supply-chain practices, the better the world can preserve precious resources and stop Climate Change. Plus, based on studies that TFI has conducted for nearly 30 years, DfE, LCAs, and efficient supply chains almost always significantly reduce overall costs.

Let sustainability competition spur on all Tech companies and all global communities to make Earth the “greenest” planet we live on.
