This is IT

The way we produce and use IT products is changing the world as we know it — in good ways, and some not so good. E-waste is piling up, ecosystems and communities are at risk and natural resources are running low. We need to be smarter, do better. Think less linear and more circular. Want to know how you can be part of that change? This is IT.
