The ICT sector is a rapidly growing sector that has over the last ten years vastly changed the work scenery in the Czech Republic. A lot of big international companies decided to open centers here and also quite a few Czech companies started and expanded their activities. The salaries they were offering compared to the existing opportunities, appeared attractive which led more and more locals leaping to this promising sector but also a lot of foreigners moving to the Czech Republic in search of better pay and working conditions.

Like all other sectors, the ICT sector is both affected by and contributing to the climate crisis. The climate crisis is starting to affect our working conditions directly and indirectly, and we think it is important to think about what should be happening in our sector to mitigate the impact of ICT on the climate crisis. There is no easy answer to this question. Yet, over the past year, in addition to working conditions, we have focused on it as well.

Stop diminishing the value of our work: Petition for Transparent Communication and Protection of Employee Benefits for ICT Workers We, the workers of the ICT sector, need to address the decline in the value of our work. Despite consistently providing quality products for our employers and clients, we face the rise of non-transparent communication and the erosion of our employee benefits from our employers. This negatively affects our work-life balance and job satisfaction.

Klimathon

Kumst Brno
The IT sector is at the centre of the climate crisis. On one hand, it is largely exacerbating it. On the other hand, it possesses all the means and capacity to change the current course. According to research by the Global e-Sustainability Initiative, the IT sector can enable the reduction of global emissions by up to 20% by 2030. This is not only by optimising the sector from within, but also by contributing to greener solutions in other sectors.
