Regardless of your stance on global warming, we can all agree that technology is critical to managing the impact of changes in our environment and to reducing the impact we all have on our planet. I have always been a firm believer that tech is a force for good, driving both innovation and sustainability. This is consistent with our values at Insight, and our commitment is to create solutions that improve the lives of our clients and communities.
This time of year, I am especially mindful of the significance our role plays in using technology for good.
I love the #EarthDay2023 theme of “Invest in Our Planet.” After all, this Earth is the only one we’ve got.
Insight’s 2023 Corporate Citizenship Report highlights the work we’re doing internally, and with partners and clients to drive sustainability and digital transformation. Specifically, we’ve helped clients:
When we decided to invest in our new headquarters in Chandler, Arizona, sustainability goals drove our design. We included key features like:
Our headquarters achieved LEED Gold accreditation for excellence in sustainability. And that, in combination with our solutions and services, earned Insight recognition on Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies.
And we’re just getting started.
Success story: See how we built an automation solution for a grain distributor to improve delivery routes (reducing carbon emissions) and prevent food spoilage.
As the leading Solutions Integrator, we are relentless in our pursuit to find new ways to use technology for good — and empower our clients to do the same. Whether you’re seeking to reduce your IT carbon footprint, meet regulatory compliance or ethically dispose of end-of-life devices, we help you make responsible choices with powerful impact.
Our purpose in doing so is simple: We help companies accelerate transformation by unlocking the power of people and technology.
This is a powerful promise. It spotlights our perpetual pursuit as innovators that bring about positive change in the areas most critical to running a business today:
It means helping an Australian grain distributor use cloud-based analytics to identify the cheapest and most efficient distribution route. It means helping energy companies build resilient and secure infrastructure to secure critical public assets. It is empowering physicians to use AI for more informed diagnoses that can prolong patient lives; or clinical researchers to more effectively share their work and solve challenges like the growing global health threat of antimicrobial resistance. It is reimagining education that is relevant to a new era of learners — our children who have grown up with smartphones and gaming controllers in hand.
The work we do every day with our clients is so much more impactful than I can summarize in a blog. But as I think about how Insight can #InvestInOurPlanet, it starts with helping those we work with to think beyond what’s possible today.
We encourage you to be ambitious with us.
