IBM, as a leading hybrid cloud, AI and business services provider, will be showcasing the synergy between sustainability goals and business objectives as technology partner of the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP27, to be hosted by the Egyptian government in Sharm-el-Sheikh from November 6 until 18.

The 27th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (COP27) aims to address the global threat of climate change by building on previous successes and charting a path for future goals.

COP27 President-Designate, Sameh Shoukry, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Arab Republic of Egypt, welcomed IBM as a technology partner of COP27. He highlighted the critical role that technology plays in helping governments, companies and organizations meet climate goals. He also recognized IBM’s expertise in creating innovative solutions that can contribute to pushing the climate agenda forward.

During the conference, IBM plans to showcase how technology and consulting can help business and government leaders align sustainability goals to organizational objectives, responding to regulatory demands without compromising profitability.

This collaboration with the Presidency of Egypt is in accordance to IBM's history of environmental commitments and alliances, such as establishing a goal to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 or being a founding member of the United Nations Environment Programme’s Science-Policy-Business Forum on the Environment. Programs such as the IBM Sustainability Accelerator enable organizations and communities to tackle environmental issues.

“IBM is honored to be a technology partner in this year’s historic COP conference and to help address the existential challenge of climate change,” said IBM’s Chairman and CEO, Arvind Krishna. “I believe that technology can turn sustainability ambition into action. At IBM, we combine technology and expertise to help some of the world’s largest public and private organizations achieve their sustainability goals, in addition to setting our own strong environmental commitments.”
