Track 2 : Information Technology
Green technology and sustainability are becoming increasingly important considerations in the IT industry. As technology continues to advance, so too does the amount of energy required to power it, which can have a significant impact on the environment. To mitigate this impact, companies are increasingly turning to renewable energy sources and energy-efficient technologies to power their data centres and other IT infrastructure. Additionally, companies are looking at ways to improve the sustainability of their manufacturing practices, by reducing waste and adopting more efficient production processes. By embracing these green technologies and sustainable practices, the IT industry can reduce its carbon footprint and become a more responsible and environmentally friendly sector. Furthermore, such practices can also result in cost savings and improved efficiency, making them not only environmentally beneficial but also economically advantageous. In this track, we will provide valuable insights into the latest trends and innovations in green tech and sustainability for the IT industry.

Track 4 : Education, Business and Management
Green sustainable technology and management refers to the development and implementation of technologies, policies, and practises aimed at reducing the negative impact that human activities have on the environment while simultaneously promoting economic growth and social well-being. Green sustainable technology and management are also known as eco-friendly technology and management. This strategy prioritises the conservation of natural resources, the mitigation of waste and pollution, and the development of renewable and environmentally friendly energy sources. Collaboration between the government, industry, and communities is required for effective green sustainable management. This is done in order to discover sustainable solutions for the future of our planet. It also involves engaging in sustainable practises on a day-to-day basis, such as recycling, cutting down on energy consumption, and making use of products that are kind to the environment. We can make strides toward a more sustainable future for the planet and the generations that will come after us if we implement environmentally friendly technologies and management practises.
