In the contemporary landscape of corporate responsibility, environmental sustainability has become a vital concern. With enterprises facing increasing regulatory pressure to record and mitigate their carbon emissions, energy usage, and overall sustainability practices, CIOs and IT departments find themselves at the forefront of this paradigm shift.

As stewards of digital infrastructure and data management, CIOs and IT directors play a pivotal role in ensuring that organisations not only meet compliance standards but also embrace meaningful sustainable practices.

This article delves into the necessary steps CIOs and IT departments must take to attain a comprehensive and accurate view of their environmental impact while navigating the evolving regulatory landscape.
