1. Why have you agreed to be a Tech Impact judge?

Awards drive competition, new ideas and spread energy. So I see the Awards as a sort of industry collaboration and supports getting this vital topic to the top of the agenda

2. Name an easy win for resellers and MSPs looking to become more sustainable

  • Choose your partnerships carefully: Switch all your energy usage to green energy providers; If you have a company car fleet, look to switch to Electric Vehicle salary sacrifice scheme; Partner with vendors and distributors who have committed to sustainability
  • Educate your entire workforce on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and a high level intro into scopes 1,2,3 – everyone can make a difference and can bring ideas to the business

3. What advice would you give tech solutions providers weighing up whether to enter these awards?

You have nothing to lose – by entering you’ll show pride in what you do and support bringing inspiration to our market
