Our mission as BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, is to enable the information society. Providing the global IT profession with the knowledge and expertise it needs to create low carbon emissions and ensure energy efficiency is fundamental to our mission.
As the environmental impact of IT becomes ever more apparent and international law continues to tighten, we are committed to equipping IT professionals and organisations with the knowledge and skills to deliver energy efficient IT.
We are widely involved with various green initiatives including extensive work through the BCS Data Centre and Green IT Specialist Groups. Our unique position as an authoritative but impartial organisation with a serious commitment to Green IT means we are well placed to provide individuals and organisations around the world with the tools they need to reduce their carbon footprint.
The 30% Club believes that gender balance on boards not only encourages better leadership and governance, but diversity further contributes to better all-round board performance, and ultimately increased corporate performance for both companies and their shareholders.
The 30% Club aims to develop a diverse pool of talent for all businesses through the efforts of its Chair and CEO members who are committed to better gender balance at all levels of their organisations. Business leadership is key to our mission, taking the issue beyond a specialist diversity effort and into mainstream talent management.
The 30% Club approach - collaborative, concerted business-led efforts - can help accelerate progress towards better gender balance at all levels of organisations. The 30% Club does not believe mandatory quotas are the right approach. Instead, we support a voluntary approach in order to realise meaningful, sustainable change. 30% Club efforts are complementary to individual company efforts and existing networking groups, adding to these through collaboration and the visible and voluntary commitment of senior business leaders.
