Sustainable Tech at COP26 Glasgow

November 15, 2021

Today we find ourselves at a pivotal moment. It may be the world’s best last chance to get runaway climate change under control as we get closer to the 2030 deadline. As we have come to learn, there is a need for action; and at a faster pace. Solutions in a linear manner will not be enough to achieve maintaining the world temperature below 1.5°C – or even 2°C –  above pre-industrial levels. We need to exponentially accelerate our change towards sustainability, and the enabler to accomplish this is technology.

This is why at Globant, as a technology creator, we believe our responsibility is two-fold. On the one hand, we must offer the exponentiality needed to drastically curb emissions and reach sustainable goals; and on the other hand, we must make sure that every piece of technology designed and implemented is smarter and greener to address the impact and emissions of our own activities as an industry. Sustainability is the central concept in everything we do. It’s important that we direct our technology, our efforts, and our voice to make a positive impact on our global society.

Globant was proud to participate in the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, the most relevant global arena to discuss climate emergency and actionable, innovative sustainability solutions. By leading the conversation on the crucial role technology plays in accelerating sustainability and tackling climate change, we presented our disruptive work, Sustainable Tech. Not only are we committed to net zero emissions and reducing our carbon footprint within our own company, but we apply those benchmarks into the lasting solutions we develop for our clients. The result is a business perspective that views sustainability initiatives as a truly integral piece of a company strategy. We call this concept business legitimacy, and it’s one that we are enthusiastically introducing to the global conversation.

We are in a unique position to combine digital and sustainable transformation: making software greener, one byte at the time.

We are ready to partner up and be part of the solution.

Making good use of tech. Day by day. Byte by byte.
