TechUK is a membership trade association which brings together people, companies and organisations, by creating a network for innovation and collaboration across business, government and stakeholders. It aims to provide a better future for people, society, the economy and the planet.

Craig Melson - techUKCraig Melson (pictured right), associate director, Climate, Environment and Sustainability said, “The Climate Strategy and Resilience Council has a highly important role in setting the direction for tech firms in implementing their net zero targets in 2022 – and we are anticipating some significant forthcoming policy developments in this area too.

“As the council was about to embark on a new two-year fixed term, we took the opportunity to expand the group to 29 members to ensure the broadest possible range of our membership was represented. This a group of high-profile industry leaders and I am really looking forward to working with them to shape the sector’s preparations for future climate change.

The new council, which starts in January 2022, comprises sustainability leads from a range of high-profile organisations such as BT, Hitachi, Microsoft, BAE systems, IBM, Atos, Cisco, Fujitsu Deloitte, KPMG and HP, to name but a few!

Andrew Brown said, “E-waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams in the world and the tech industry has a really important role to play in addressing how this is dealt with, both within our own sector and that of others.

“The race to achieving net zero emissions demands a more sustainable and circular approach. This is something that N2S advocates in our own processes and innovations and I would like to drive this approach forward in my role on the council to help enterprise and industry bring positive outcomes to climate change.”
