Atea Sustainability Forum - The venue for sustainable IT

The Nordics' largest event for sustainable IT

Atea Sustainability Forum

The event gathers IT buyers and representatives from the global IT industry to a day packed with inspiration and discussions about sustainability and IT. At Atea Sustainability Forum you have the opportunity to learn from both the industry and peers, but also share your own experiences and become part of the solution. We'll also launch the ASF report, a report which sends out a very important message to the industry. 

ūüí° Our concept¬†

Atea Sustainability Forum is a Nordic event taking place in Stockholm (main stage), Oslo and Copenhagen at the same time. Choose whether you want to participate digitally during the morning or on site throughout the day. The physical participation gives an exclusive opportunity to have in-depth dialogues with leading representatives in the industry.

ūüĎČ How do we make IT more sustainable?

Come and discuss what the industry can do, what you can do and - above all - what we can do together.

We’re excited to meet you on March 21!

The theme of this year is: Climate Accountability

As we ‚Äď to quote UN secretary general António Guterres ‚Äď are on a highway to climate hell with our foot still on the accelerator, we must take immediate and relevant actions to cut emissions. The key to succeed spells accountability ‚Äď climate accountability.


To the Nordic IT buyers, this means:

  • Making real progress and demonstrate it
  • Focus on the measures with the greatest impact
  • Moving from target setting to actions
  • Taking responsibility for a just transition in the whole value chain
  • Increasing the access to robust data and combat greenwashing

What does accountability mean for each actor: buyers, manufacturers, and industry coalitions? What do we need to do and how can we collaborate?
