October 16, 2023 by Joe Panettieri

The 90-minute workshops involve one-on-one meetings that can be hosted virtually, on-site at a partner or customer organization, or at an HPE or Kyocera office, the two technology companies said. It sounds like with workshops specifically target United Kingdom customers.

The workshops include three components:

  1. Discovery Process to assess a customer's current position and identify gaps or blockers in the sustainability journey.
  2. Expert Consultation featuring an HPE Master Technologist in Sustainable Transformation and a TD Synnex technology partner ecosystem expert.
  3. Access to the GreenLake Business Advisory Tool, which helps partners and customers to optimize IT infrastructure.

Clearly, TD Synnex and HPE are using the workshops to position HPE GreenLake technology for green IT and sustainability projects. And Kyocera Document Solutions UK is positioning itself as a managed IT services provider that can help customers with green IT projects and overall sustainability solutions.

Channel Partners and Sustainability: North America Lags Europe

Generally speaking, sustainability remains a priority for many technology partners in 2023, according to a Canalys worldwide survey of 545 channel partners across 76 countries.

However, trends vary greatly from region to region. Among the regional nuances to note: 55% of North America partners and 48% of Latin America partners are not yet tracking sustainability KPIs (key performance indicators), compared to 29% in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and 34% in APAC (Asia-Pacific).
