This IDC Survey Spotlight, which examines results from our 2022 Future of Industry Ecosystems Global Survey (n = 1,270), fielded to CXOs, business-line executives, and IT leaders, environmental sustainability remains a focus initiative among ecosystem partners. We asked the following question: When you consider the collective capital you have across the industry ecosystems you participate in, what are your top initiatives? (By "capital", we mean asset, operational, financial, and people.) The top answer of environmental sustainability shows there is a recognition that the area is too complex for any one organization to address on its own.

In our Future of Industry Ecosystems practice, we focus on three key areas: shared data and insights, shared and codeveloped applications, and shared operations and expertise. Also important in our research is enabling blended physical and digital ways of delivering products and services to the end customer and collaborating with ecosystem partners. Each of these areas can contribute to improving an organization's environmental sustainability footprint.

We will continue to explore other topics related to environmental sustainability across ecosystems, covered in our current and future research: these include which participants in an ecosystem are most important (e.g., tech providers, public entities, service providers), what IT investments are and will be made, and analysis on the top sustainability use cases across industry.
