Oracle Signs the Tech for Environment Initiative

The Tech for Good Summit is an initiative of the French Presidency that was founded in 2018. It brings together a diverse group of corporate and non-profit leaders from various global organizations. Tech for Good is composed of five groups of 15 to 20 organizations, including large companies, NGOs, investment funds, and startups. These five groups are:

  • Tech for Education
  • Future of Work
  • Tech for Diversity
  • Tech for Economic Inclusiveness
  • Tech for Environment

Oracle is one of 15 companies that comprise the Tech for Environment group. This group has the objective of decreasing our environmental footprint in line with the Paris Agreement and promoting tech solutions to achieve it. The Tech for Enviroment group has also been analyzing how to participate in a “green recovery” from the current crisis.

The companies in the Tech for Environment workstream believe that addressing climate change is the most urgent environmental challenge and that drastic reduction of emissions is needed across all sectors. They have identified the following three initiatives to reach their goals:

  • Disclosing and monitoring greenhouse gas emissions
  • Reducing the tech carbon footprint
  • Leveraging and promoting tech to decrease the global environmental footprint

Oracle has been and will continue to work hard on each of these goals in order to help decrease our environmental footprint. You can see some of the things that Oracle is doing to help reduce our own environmental footprint, as well as offering solutions that can help our customers with their sustainability initiatives.
