Sustainability management: an opportunity for CIOs
Organizations of all types face growing pressure to minimize energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, consumption of water and other natural resources, and waste output – in short, to adopt more sustainable business practices. As pressure from consumers, investors, regulators and activists grows, two key points have been largely ignored: first, managing for sustainability does not necessarily increase costs – done right, it can significantly improve business performance; second, IT has a central role to play in achieving these benefits. This combination of factors creates an opportunity for forward-thinking CIOs to lead the way toward sustainable practices – and, in the process, raise their profile and strategic value to the organization.
