Panel: Circular economy - is it just talk?

According to the Global Footprint Network, Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when humanity’s demand for ecological resources in a given year exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that year. It is a date that is arriving sooner and sooner each year on account of resource depletion, so how can the digital infrastructure sector help move the date and live in balance with the planet?

This panel will hone in on the practical steps which operators can take to prioritise refurbished inventory over new, promoting hardware design for reusability, championing water recycling and heat reuse.
