Future skill: sustainability in IT

How digital technologies can contribute to achieving sustainability goals

Sustainable IT - sustainable business shapes the future

As a strategic partner, adesso is part of the first comprehensive online qualification programme focused on the future skill ‘digital sustainability’, which was developed as part of a joint effort by the XU Group and ClimatePartner. What the online education and exchange platform ‘XU School of Sustainability’ offers includes a holistic further education programme for companies that want to make their employees fit in the future-oriented core areas of sustainability.

Using digital technologies and sustainably developing digital solutions supports and influences the achievement of established sustainability goals in many areas – be it through data-driven efficiency improvements or digital innovations. However, it is also important to make digital processes and technologies more sustainable in a targeted way, as energy and resource consumption must be limited. Data, infrastructures, possibilities for digital interaction and workplaces are the keys to unifying digitalisation and sustainability. The digital transformation creates new opportunities for sustainable business and opens up new possibilities to shape companies.

Make your employees fit in the area of sustainability

In the course ‘Digital sustainability by adesso’, which was jointly developed by adesso, XU and ClimatePartner, your employees learn about the connections between digitalisation and sustainability. They are taught to identify fields of action and derive and prioritise measures for their area of responsibility in order to then put them into practice.

Taking the digital product lifecycle as a basis, they receive the essential basic knowledge for conceiving, selecting, developing and operating sustainable, digital solutions, which is based on research and experience. They learn how digital solutions can be designed, adapted and used in a way that is sustainable and future-oriented.

After completing the course, they will be familiar with the drivers, challenges and potentials that arise as a result of using digital technologies and will be able to apply these insights to the sustainable orientation of your company.

>> To date, software has been neglected as a driver of sustainability, but in our view, it offers the greatest leverage. For the course offering, we have prepared a condensed version of our expertise on sustainable IT. Companies and their employees will learn everything relevant to the topic in a kind of crash course. Afterwards, employees will have a broad overview of the future-oriented topic as such and will be able to classify their company and implement the strategies and courses of action to reduce their carbon footprint that can be derived from it.
