The Circular Economy for Data Centre hardware is a powerful and practical approach to meeting the ever more demanding needs of modern computing while bending the curve of resource consumption all along the supply chain - from the design whiteboard to the factory production line to the data centre floor. Resource usage in materials, energy, and design collaboration can be optimized and reduced, with huge potential reductions in carbon usage and resource impacts of all types.

The power of an open design and development approach all along the ecosystem has been proven over the past twenty-five years in software and at least the past ten years in hardware.

The expert panelists will answer audience questions on how they can contribute with their organisational effort and their personal engagement. We will address available incentives, potential barriers, and provide clear motivations and how-tos that can be actionable as soon as tomorrow morning with worldwide impact in weeks or months. Please join us to learn how you and your organisation can contribute and benefit economically and sustainably.
