Hybrid cloud, AI, and business services provider IBM, says it has been named the technology partner for the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP27, which will be hosted by the Egyptian government in Sharm-el-Sheikh from November 6 to 18.
The company said it would showcase how technology and consulting could help business and government leaders align sustainability goals to organisational objectives, including the way they responded to regulatory demands without compromising profitability.
The company stated that the collaboration with the Presidency of Egypt built on its history of environmental commitments and alliances, such as establishing a goal to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 or being a founding member of the United Nations Environment Programme’s Science-Policy-Business Forum on the Environment.
IBM’s Chairman and CEO, Arvind Krishna, said that the company was happy to be honoured as the technology partner for COP27 conference and would help to address the existential challenge of climate change.
