Cop 27 has highlighted that energy consumption and emission reduction remains a top priority for the U.N. In fact, scientists say climate rises must be limited to 1.5C by 2100 to avoid the worst effects of climate change. We are at a climate crossroads and need to act now.

Decreasing your carbon footprint has never been more important and urgent

Governments are committed to ensuring companies are implementing green initiatives and reducing their consumption. There are many sustainability initiatives and benefits for companies, alongside stringent regulations.

The U.K. has pledged to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and the U.S. has plans for 100 percent carbon neutrality by 2050 under the new Biden-Harris Administration.1 Due to standards regulations globally, companies will need to report on their energy usage and carbon emissions.

This is creating new challenges for businesses

Our global business environment requires an ‘always on’ approach with zero downtime, but budgets, teams and IT infrastructure are already stretched. So, how can you begin to reduce your carbon footprint amid growing demands?

Start with taking control of your hybrid cloud environment

The move to the cloud can be paved with stresses. Cloud movement is often done in real time, meaning there’s no room for error. And that can be expensive and resource intensive.

As we all know, less pressure on your systems and finances means less resources used. Often, strain is put on already stretched environments, which leads to overspend and overstretched teams.
