Atea Sustainability Focus

We cannot resolve the sustainability challenges effectively on an individual basis. Atea Sustainability Focus brings together Danish and Nordic IT buyers, so that we can use our combined voice to increase the global focus on sustainability in the IT industry’s supply chain. By becoming part of ASF, your company can influence the debate and become part of the solution.

About Atea Sustainability Focus


Atea Sustainability Focus (ASF) is a network of Nordic IT buyers that gives them a combined voice to contribute to increasing the global IT industry’s sustainability. Since the global IT industry considers Nordic buyers to be among the most progressive and ambitious when it comes to sustainability, as a Danish IT buyer you can use this opportunity to use your influence to increase the global supply chain's sustainability.


As part of ASF, an Advisory Board has also been established that on an annual basis considers, selects and provides a number of concrete Nordic recommendations from the Nordic IT buyers directly to the management of Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) that, with 140 members, 6 million employees and thousands of subsuppliers, is the world’s leading coalition for sustainability in the IT industry.

Give your company a global environmental voice!

Sustainability in the IT industry is not just a Danish concern, and we are all part of the solution. The challenges of reducing climate change, and ensuring responsible extraction of minerals, as well as acceptable working conditions, throughout the supply chain must be resolved across national borders.

By contributing to our stakeholder dialogue, your company now has a chance to put its clear mark on the IT industry's global environmental profile.

We know that the combined voice of dedicated procurement professionals, with a passion for sustainable solutions, can have a huge influence on the IT industry's standards and best practices. If you have a passion for sustainability, and want your voice to be heard by the IT industry, thereby contributing to clear recommendations for market initiatives and increased sustainability throughout the supply chain, you should sign up to Atea Sustainability Focus.
