Enterprise Architecture & Sustainability
One of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals is aimed specifically at industry and innovation, with the intention to: “Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation”. The UN’s vision is that such a goal can not only lead to a reduction in the significant carbon footprint of the IT industry, but will, itself, introduce and promote new technologies that can impact sustainability across all industries and contribute towards a much greener future.
This section of the event will focus upon the critical roles of the Enterprise Architect and technology standards, in aligning the strategy of the Portfolio of Digital Open Standards with the goals of increasing sustainability and reducing emissions.
