Google has been running carbon-neutral since 2007 and recently announced that they will run on carbon-free energy by 2030. As more of the major cloud providers also commit to reaching zero-net emissions by 2030, there is a spotlight on green cloud computing which leads to the discussion of cloud waste and the cloud resources that go unused or underutilized.

Listen to Asim Razzaq, Founder, Yotascale, and Dr. Tim Chou, Lecturer, Stanford University, and former President of Oracle on Demand, discuss how sustainability and climate commitments will be at the forefront for the future of business and how to accelerate sustainable engineering.
