Creating value for the environment, society and the economy through the application of digital technology.
Enabling a sustainable future
We are supporting the UK’s ambition for a more sustainable future and its commitment as the first major economy to enshrine a net-zero emissions target into law. With advanced digital technologies playing a major role in enabling sustainability, our approach to sustainability supports organisations in three key areas:
1. Enabling a twin transition
Success over the next 20 years will be defined by a company’s ability to transition to both a digital and sustainable economy. This twin transition is already creating new opportunities for organisations and supporting growth. We support three enablers of this twin transition:
Energy efficiency and security
Decarbonised supply chains
2. Building a UK centric digital clean technology ecosystem
We support early stage technology companies through our Future Scope programme, supporting them in understanding environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investment criteria, and solving industrial sustainability challenges.
3. Making digital technology sustainable by design
Advanced Digital Technologies account for around 2% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We are supporting the design and implementation of low emission technologies.
