Online course for sustainability in the software & IT industry

Join the first sustainability crash course designed for the software and IT industry. Learn how to turn decarbonisation into a competitive advantage and risk mitigation.
Happened in December 2022 and available on demand.

The software & IT industry is responsible for 2-3% of global GHG emissions. By 2040, it will constitute 15% of global emissions.
The challenge is how to meet the increasing demand for energy while reducing GHG emissions. Companies taking advantage of sustainability and ESG reporting will become solid players and innovators in the sector. It is expected that companies will have to report on environmental and ESG performance under existing and upcoming regulations. Companies willing to gain competitive advantage have to start now.

Plan A supports hundreds of companies such as N26, Trivago, Sorare, Payhawk and Jokr to take this leadership by implementing a scientific and data-driven approach to sustainability.
