In December 2015, 196 parties of the UN signed The Paris Agreement, a landmark treaty on climate change. For New Zealand, this agreement serves as a rallying call for environmental responsibility and sustainability.
Businesses, in particular, are compelled to embrace this imperative, moving beyond viewing sustainability as a buzzword and integrating it into their core operations.

They are constantly seeking ways to streamline operations, optimise resource utilisation, and reduce costs, all while minimising their environmental impact. Technology plays a critical role in achieving these goals.

The Role of Technology in Driving Operational Efficiency

Operational efficiency and sustainability are closely intertwined. Sustainable innovation not only reduces energy consumption but also diminishes carbon footprints and optimises infrastructure utilisation. With technology at the forefront, businesses can achieve these goals effectively.

1. Enhancing Operational Visibility:

With 89% of organisations aiming to reduce their overall IT energy consumption, modern technologies provide unparalleled visibility into operational processes, enabling businesses to pinpoint inefficiencies and areas for improvement. Aruba’s commitment to sustainability is clear in its hardware design, which prioritises the elimination of hazardous materials and the use of recyclable products and packaging. Additionally, intelligent power management features on switches and access points, combined with AI-driven automation, substantially decrease network issues and power consumption.

3. Enabling Remote Work Solutions

Remote work is increasingly recognised as a key strategy for enhancing workplace sustainability. By implementing secure and efficient networks, organisations can facilitate hybrid work environments, aligning with their ESG goals.

Secure work-from-home solutions not only enhance flexibility but also contribute to sustainability efforts by reducing commute emissions. Employees accessing corporate networks remotely help lower carbon footprints by minimising travel-related emissions. Aruba’s network design supports IoT devices, enabling efficient resource management and smart office solutions with lower hardware and lifecycle management profiles.

2. Streamlining Deployment Processes

Efficient IT solutions can significantly contribute to reducing New Zealand’s carbon footprint, which amount to 73,768 kilo tonnes of CO₂ emissions per year.

Technological advancements play a crucial role in streamlining deployment processes, minimising resource consumption and environmental impact. Aruba Central’s zero-touch provisioning allows devices to be centrally configured, shipped, and installed remotely, cutting the need for skilled technicians to travel to distant locations. This not only enhances efficiency but also reduces greenhouse gas emissions associated with travel. According to Aruba, their zero-touch provisioning can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 650g CO₂ for every kilometre not driven.

4. IoT Integration

Aruba’s network design facilitates direct connectivity for IoT devices, ending the need for added hardware and reducing lifecycle management requirements. This integration streamlines operations and enhances sustainability by enabling smart office solutions with unparalleled efficiency.

By using Aruba’s IoT integration, businesses can optimise various aspects of office operations, such as energy management, space utilisation, and resource allocation. Smart lighting systems, IoT-enabled HVAC systems, and other IoT devices can dynamically adjust settings based on occupancy and environmental conditions, leading to significant energy savings and environmental benefits.
