IT sustainability is a priority but not yet a core capability for most firms.
In November 2021, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate how companies can leverage as-a-service models to achieve sustainability goals. Forrester conducted an online survey with 502 decision-makers in sustainability at global companies to explore this topic.
Respondents said they believe bridging the gap between establishing and accomplishing IT sustainability goals requires a new class of specialized infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider.
Nearly three in four respondents said their firm needs the assistance of a third-party partner to achieve its sustainability goals. And although nearly four in five said their firm has a solid sustainability plan featuring a wide-ranging set of cost-saving and carbon-reduction initiatives, fewer than half said their firm is on track to meet its goals.
Respondents said the as-a-service model aids in sustainability and
that it could provide their firms with multiple advantages, including:
• Reducing sustainability-related management costs (40%).
• Reducing overall e-waste generation (45%).
• Lowering the cost of managing end-of-life equipment (39%).
