Mission-Vision /ICT & Sustainability

Building a sustainable world through responsible, ICT-enabled transformation

In collaboration with members from major Information and Communication Technology (ICT) companies and organisations around the globe, the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) is a leading source of impartial information, resources and best practices for achieving integrated social and environmental sustainability through ICT.

In a rapidly growing information society, technology presents both challenges and opportunities. GeSI facilitates real world solutions to real world issues both within the ICT industry and the greater sustainability community. We contribute to a sustainable future, communicate the industry's corporate responsibility efforts, and increasingly drive the sustainability agenda.

GeSI takes a holistic view of sustainability. We support efforts to ensure environmental and social sustainability because they are inextricably linked in how they impact society and communities around the globe.

With a diverse and global member base and partnerships, GeSI fosters collaborative and innovative approaches to sustainability. We support member initiatives in both developed and developing nations to quickly and effectively respond to issues such as climate change, energy efficiency, e-waste management and resource efficiency, responsible supply chain practices and human rights.

GeSI is committed to sustainability actions and outcomes. Our members and partners use their collective knowledge and experience to identify opportunities and develop solutions for improving energy and resource efficiency, reducing carbon emissions and footprints, ensuring sustainable practices in the supply chain, encouraging access to sustainable technologies, and supporting ICT-enabled transformation across all industries and sectors around the globe.
