We Are All Tech Companies Now: Tech Sustainability Issues Across Sectors

November 2, 2016, 11:00 am-12:00 pm

More and more companies are integrating technology into the core of what they do. Industrial companies have rebranded as tech companies, athletic apparel companies have moved into fitness electronics, and toy companies are producing tablet computers, among other examples. As companies integrate technology into products and services, they must manage a raft of technology-related sustainability issues such as data privacy and product recycling. This session will give you a glimpse into the future and perspective on how companies can address the risks and opportunities of integrated technology.
