Sustainability Council

As the innovators of the 21st century, we have a responsibility to do good. So we’re building a framework to champion change and encourage BIMA members to take action.

About the council

We all know about the climate crisis and the challenges we face in the coming decades. And few are so well placed to do something about it.

As the world’s innovators we have an unrivalled ability to create the future, and a duty to ensure that future is sustainable. This council will champion sustainability in the digital sector and build a framework to enable BIMA members to take action.
