Techies Go Green Launches Go Green Ambassador Programme

  • Techies Go Green announced today (Friday 29th July) the launch of its Go Green Ambassador Programme.

    Techies Go Green is a not-for-profit movement of IT and tech-oriented companies committed to decarbonising their businesses. This group will raise sustainability awareness by delivering environmental education through articles and virtual events, while motivating others to be more energy efficient by adopting environmentally friendly lifestyles and renewable energy resources.

    They will also lead projects and develop initiatives to help reduce signatories’ environmental impact both at work and home, thus enabling and supporting a ‘think green, live green’ approach.

    Michael O’Hara said: “The key to bringing about real change is collective action, driven by verifiably sustainable business practices and lifestyles. However, to act, people need to know where to start and that’s where the education piece is so crucial."

    He continued: “Techies Go Green – led by our Go Green Ambassadors and Go Green Partners – plugs this gap, providing companies with the knowledge and direction around how they can be more environmentally friendly. Together, we can share experience, lead change and drive impact.”
