The Open Group Event Highlights  – January 31-February 2, 2022

Open Standards & Platforms for Operationalizing COP26

Since August 2020, The Open Group has been working with member organizations to create an open standard for tracking environmental footprint data, unifying data recording, processing, and sharing across industries. We are making progress towards a vision of making it possible to automate the calculation of greenhouse gas data – and, eventually, data such as water usage and landfill – giving companies real-time, reliable insight into their impact. The Open Group is now focused on Open Standards and Platforms for Operationalizing COP26.

Why Attend: Solving the climate crisis demands clearer conversations, stronger leadership buy-in, better training, greater support, and more forceful deadlines. We get there by collaboration through data and open standards.
Digital Practitioners Day

Reflections on 2020 and Looking Ahead to 2021

By Steve Nunn, President and CEO, The Open Group

Happy New Year everyone!

Firstly, I hope that you, your family, and friends, have been able to stay safe during these trying times. So many around the world have lost so much in this COVID-19 pandemic which clearly will be with us for some time yet. We must, however, be heartened by the unprecedented speed with which vaccines have been developed. The delivery and administration of these vaccines has only just begun, of course, but we have good reason to be optimistic about the coming months.
