About us

Defra’s e-Sustainability Alliance (DeSA) was founded in 2018. We seek to promote, collect, share and implement best practice aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and Defra’s 25 Year Environment Plan.

We’ve created an industry guide which offers best practice advice on sustainability in information and communication technology (ICT), as well as a range of other projects.

Who we are

We are now a collaborative working group from Defra’s ICT supply chain working in partnership with the United Nations, Responsible Business Alliance and other organisations, with members varying from small to multinational global firms.

Please contact Mattie Yeta - to discuss joining the group.
