Mapping Out A Sustainable Future - Simon Wardley

Welcome to Public Cloud for Public Good, a bi-weekly newsletter and podcast focused on making the world a better place. Whether that’s making peoples lives better, building services in the public & third sectors or thinking about coding more sustainably. This podcast is hosted by Aaron Booth, a Cloud Sustainability Consultant based in the UK.

This week Aaron is joined by Simon Wardley, a British researcher and former CEO best known for the creation of Wardley Mapping. A Wardley map is a map for business strategy. Components are positioned within a value chain and anchored by the user need, with movement described by an evolution axis. Simon explains how he uses mapping to conduct the research that he carries out and talks to us about his more recent focus which has changed the way he lives and works, sustainability.

Simon’s chosen organisation for our £500 donation is the local food bank. Literally, he has asked Aaron to find his local food bank and donate the money. A food bank is a non-profit, charitable organisation that distributes food to those who have difficulty purchasing enough to avoid hunger, usually through intermediaries like food pantries and soup kitchens. We encourage you to support your local food bank if you are able to. Thank you.

The business who we have chosen to shine a light on for this episode is Greenpixie. The tech industry is not exempt from the environmental clean-up job we all face if we are to achieve a NetZero future. Greenpixie is facing this challenge head-on, researching and developing cutting-edge algorithms for digital carbon measurement, raising awareness, and building innovative tools.
