On Earth Day 2021, we hosted our SODA Social webinar session, ‘Tech: The Future of Sustainability’ in partnership with the incredible energy technology leaders; OVO energy. A common theme throughout the webinar for how we can drive for a more sustainable future was with behavioural change, rather than technological change. If we focus on taking a human-first approach and understanding these behaviours can enable sustainable innovation to be positioned for success.
When asking our audience about the impact of covid-19, 72% of attendees felt that 2020 helped them become more conscious of being sustainable. The following areas are methods that our community felt they could make an impact on a day-to-day basis:
