    ESG is hot of every board agenda and will only get hotter in coming years and the GSA believe sharing will improve the industry wide performance in ESG. This roundtable discussion will look at the requirement for a Service Provider Sustainability Index, not as a name and shame index, but to allow performers to promote themselves and for poorer performers to learn from others. We’ll look at issues such as carbon emissions and green data centres as well as social issues such as inclusion and diversity, supplier diversity, responsible automation etc.
