About the Logicalis CIO Summit

This year our annual CIO summit will focus on the theme of forging a digital path to sustainable IT.   

The concept of IT sustainability brings together two major aspects, which have a significant impact on our future, namely technology and the environment and as sustainability moves up the corporate agenda CIOs will be a pivotal figure in delivering change. 

Our international CIO summit creates a unique digital space where you can discover how-to knowledge, be inspired by digital-first industry leaders, and join an influential and engaging senior technology community who are driving sustainability, innovation, and better business outcomes. 

Opening address

Driving sustainable business outcomes for the digital age

Having sustainable operations is no longer just about your reputation as an organisation. It’s about being a responsible business, your bottom line, attracting new talent and the opportunity to innovate. 

Hosted by Bob Bailkoski, CEO, Logicalis

IDC Keynote

Deconstructing sustainability - the customer transition to green IT

In this keynote, Bjoern Stengel, IDC’s global sustainability research lead, will share his perspective on IT’s critical role in enabling organisations’ sustainable transformation journeys, the implications on CIOs’ agendas. 

We will highlight organisations’ current ESG commitments and how they are responding to stakeholder pressure, but also how they’re driving business value through the use of sustainable IT. 

Bjoern will also provide insights into the changing regulatory landscape and ways in which decision makers are incentivised and held accountable for their organisation’s progress on sustainability maturity.
