Our Commitment to Sustainability
London Tech Week’s purpose is to showcase how tech is transforming both business and society by driving important conversations around transformation, diversity and innovation.
Our purposeful content tackles pressing issues facing society today, providing opportunities for the talent of today and tomorrow to develop and thrive, and drives momentum on inclusivity in tech by building the reputation of London as the most open, innovative and inclusive city in the world.
We are committed to running our event in an environmentally and socially responsible way. We also want to go further and inspire the sustainable development of the industry we serve. We gather the tech eco-system and provide a platform for decision makers, industry leaders and entrepreneurs to implement change.
