Global Technology Leaders Join Delphix in Founding Nonprofit to Advance Sustainability
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, a think tank of global technology leaders and Delphix, the industry leader for DevOps test data management, announced the formation of SustainableIT.org, a nonprofit organization focused on advancing global sustainability through technology leadership.
“Sustainability is the megatrend of the century,” said Jedidiah Yueh, Founding Director of SustainableIT.org and Delphix Founder and CEO. “For too long, sustainability has been a problem for someone else to solve. Today, we’re joining forces with technology leaders from the world’s largest organizations to make sustainability our collective problem to solve.”
Over the next decade technology systems will dramatically increase energy consumption and related environmental and carbon impact. And digital transformation programs are increasingly putting consumer data privacy at risk, a major governance concern.
Yet most organizations independently define their approach to sustainability, with no standard metrics or reporting for the three pillars of sustainability: environmental, societal, and governance.
SustainableIT.org will unite IT leaders and experts from around the world to define best practices and standard metrics for all three pillars of sustainability in order to drive transparency and progress toward a sustainable future.
“IT leaders and teams want to have more of an impact on sustainability initiatives. Launching SustainableIT.org represents an important moment in time for empowering IT to fulfill its promise—not just innovating for the business and our customers but to help save the world,” said Brian Kirkland, Choice Hotels CIO.
SustainableIT.org is a nonprofit governed by global technology leaders with the support of partners and the technical advisor, Delphix. The founding board of directors includes:
- Amir Desai, CIO, Molina Healthcare
- Chris Gates, CTO, Allstate
- Bernard Gavgani, Global CIO, BNP Paribas
- Josh Harbert, CMO, Delphix, President of SustainableIT.org
- Brian Kirkland, CIO, Choice Hotels International
