Fujitsu, together with their Sponsor Cisco and NGO Partner The World Wildlife Fund of Australia, is pleased to invite CitySwitch signatories to an exclusive lunch event to discuss the results of their latest research - ICT Sustainability: The Australian Benchmark 2014.
The report is a result of surveying 300 CIOs and Senior ICT Managers across Australia and New Zealand and comparing the results against the previous global report completed in 2012. The research provides valuable insights into the performance of ICT Sustainability across the two countries and various industry sectors.
This briefing brings together subject matter experts from Fujitsu, Industry and NGO's to discuss both the key findings of the report as well as key insights into the role of technology and sustainability.
This event is a must for anyone building a business case for Sustainability initiatives, including energy efficiency across ICT.
