Presentation: Niklas Egels-Zandén on Social Responsibility

The keynote by Niklas Egels-Zandén is the last part of our on-demand presentation series from the Nov 11 Sustainable IT Summit. We take a closer look at the issue of social responsibility in the supply chain, a topic that is increasingly top of mind among buyers wanting to make sustainable choices when buying IT Hardware.

Of the thousands of chemicals currently available for commercial use, only about 1% have ever gone through testing to assess their effects on human health and the environment.

This week we will be publishing on-demand versions of the presentations from Sustainable IT Summit in 3 parts.
