Sustainable IT—the future of information technology

Sustainable IT measures and optimises the environmental footprint of your IT systems. Enacting impactful, cost-conscious practices in your overall performance is all about the tools you use, the framework you adopt, and the metrics you use to measure and manage change. For PALO IT Singapore, this applies to both external projects and internal benchmarks.

While technology is certainly the means to an end of this blueprint, attitude, policy and practice form the foundation of progress for Singaporean businesses. After all, the end goal isn’t a single product or platform, but a culture of sustainability across an organisation.

The PALO IT approach

How can we act on this data? PALO IT relies on four pillars to help our clients, transform the tech sector, and make sustainable IT a reality across organisations.

  • Our engine of change is a global platform that relies on big data and AI to capture, correlate and analyze IT footprints. This platform offers the ability to visualise evolution towards science-based targets, measure short- and long-term results, and capitalise on opportunities when data reveals them.
  • PALO IT development, design and transformation teams use and train others on the platform, mixing technical skills with ESG know-how.

  • A PALO IT project isn’t simply throwing out the old for the new, it’s taking existing solutions and gearing them towards sustainability. From devices, to networks, to data centres and power grids, we take the whole of an IT infrastructure and measure, transfer and enhance it to better address one’s carbon footprint.
  • This approach is sustainable in itself – the ultimate goal isn’t to just update technology, but extend its lifetime, leading to reduced costs and optimised performance.

Training & awareness

  • Meaningful transformation isn’t just about tapping into our team of experts, but empowering all people. This is where any project we’re a part of starts and ends.
  • From in-depth workshops to custom training materials, our approach builds awareness around the subject of sustainable IT, and gives autonomy to teams to steer their journey in the long-term, not just from the start and end date of our engagement.

Transparency & Comms

  • Sustainability always requires a multi-dimensional strategy, and this is no different from sustainable IT. From finance to production, procurement to marketing, addressing the challenge touches all parts of an organisation, not just IT teams.
  • Informational transparency and seamless communication is how we stay Agile, and ensure every stakeholder has a full view of what’s at stake, progress made, and where future improvements are taking us. 

The nuts and bolts of transformation

Any engagement the PALO IT team heads will differ depending on individual and business needs, but two streams form the backbone of our on-the-ground work, carbon & energy and device.

Sustainable IT across disciplines
