Eric is CEO and Founder of GoCodeGreen, a UK-based world-leading ClimateTech company with a mission to help decarbonise the digital world in which we all live. GoCodeGreen is a self-funded, independent ClimateTech business that has built the world’s first carbon impact assessments for software and ICT (Information and Communications Technology). GoCodeGreen has already worked with over 25 companies across 5 industry sectors and consistently identified carbon reduction opportunities of up to 45%. GoCodeGreen has been nominated for the Earthshot Prize, in the Fix our Climate category for 2023 and is the winner of the World Green Technology Leader Award. Here, Eric talks about the wonderful opportunity for CXOs to take a leadership position in digital and technology decarbonisation as part of achieving their net-zero commitments.

This matters. If you have committed your organisation to a net-zero target then you will be unable to achieve it without tackling the carbon costs associated with your use of technology. 

We live in a digital world. But we also live in a world in crisis. Every business in every sector will use technology in some form to create the amazing products, services, and capabilities they offer to their customers. Every business has a role to play, whether small or big, to contribute toward action. By implication all CXOs are needed to take a leadership position to help drive a change in the way businesses are run, the choices they make, and the culture they build within their organisations.
