With the threat of climate change very much on everyone’s minds, it is clear that the changes needed to improve the situation cannot be left solely to the world’s politicians to implement – we must all play a part in creating a greener future. Although this might sound challenging, it is crucial, and one way that companies may be able to contribute is by switching to cloud-based computing. So, here we look at some ways this innovative technology could help save the planet, and also provide additional benefits for your business.
The importance of living in a more sustainable way, to lessen our impact on the environment, is now widely known, further highlighted by the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26). So, when a potentially greener technology solution comes along, in the shape of cloud computing, it deserves serious consideration. In fact, even the UK Government has recognised the considerable environmental benefits of the cloud, recently encouraging companies to use cloud-based applications to curb carbon emissions and fight climate change. Although this cutting-edge IT may not make your business completely carbon neutral, it is certainly a step in the right direction, so here are some great reasons why cloud technology provides a much greener choice than most.
