Beyond Buzzwords: Making Digital Sustainability a Reality

Many teams within our community understand the necessity of integrating their digital products into their sustainability strategies. However, in a series of recent interviews with product teams, we revealed a disconnect between awareness and action. Sounds familiar? The reasons, though straightforward, pose significant challenges:

  • Development hurdles: Building digital products is inherently time-consuming and expensive, leading to a culture of “scoping” and prioritizing core business needs. This can unintentionally exclude sustainability features.

  • Knowledge gap: PMs and sustainability managers often lack the technical expertise to articulate relevant solutions for their specific tech stack and codebase, with devs responding with the “you-have-no-idea-what-you’re-talking-about” eyebrow raise

In this 90-minute learning session, we are aiming to bridge that gap and empower both sides to bring the topic back into your next sprint planning!
