Who made the shortlist for CRN's inaugural event championing environmental and social sustainability?
We are delighted to unveil the shortlisted finalists for the CRN Tech Impact Awards, which will take place virtually on 16 September.
The CRN Tech Impact Campaign and Awards is designed to spread best practice when it comes to environmental and social sustainability in the channel.
Technology has a huge role to play in helping organisations decarbonise over the next decade (with recent claims that digital services could help cut global carbon emissions by as much as 30 per cent). Meanwhile, the industry is innovating hard in a bid to cut its own ecological footprint and continue to make a social impact.
The most successful firms over the next decade must show customers, employees and investors they are leading the way when it comes to environmental and social sustainability.
The shortlisted entries will be marked by our expert judging panel, before the winners are announced during a special one-hour show on 16 September. Good luck to all finalists.
