EU Green Week is the annual opportunity to debate European environmental policy with policymakers, leading environmentalists and stakeholders from Europe and beyond. This year’s EU Green Week 2022 theme is “EU Green Deal – Make it Real” and will focus on the European Green Deal – the EU’s sustainable and transformative growth strategy for a resource-efficient and climate-neutral Europe by 2050.

As part of the EU Green Week, Digital for Planet will contribute to the debate by shedding light on the key role of digital technologies in achieving the European Green Deal goals in the workshop Green Digital for Sustainable Transformation”.

“Green Digital for Sustainable Transformation” WORKSHOP

IoT sensors and their data management provide better assessments and greener services in our cities. Videoconferencing from home offices cuts travel costs. Open-sourced platforms and applications improve the participation of people in the co-creation of more sustainable policies.

All of these outcomes are wonderful but have we ever wondered about the negative impact these digital solutions have on our environment? To make Europe climate-neutral by 2050, we need to ensure that digital technologies do not consume more energy than they save. At the moment, the Information Communications and Technology (ICT) industry produces more than 830 million tons of carbon dioxide annually. That corresponds to about 4% of global CO2 emissions – twice as much as the commercial flights’ impact! This needs to change!

Digital for Planet calls for organisations and individuals to join forces to advance green digital technologies that do not harm our planet. The Green Digital for Sustainable Transformation workshop will bring together top experts from the European Commission, industry and academia to present and discuss solutions that will allow our society to harness green digital technologies and reach the European Green Deal objectives.

WHY PARTICIPATE?

The D4P’s EU Green Week 2022 Partner Event will be an opportunity to:

  • Liaise and network with top experts from the industry, innovative SMEs, academia, NGOs, and public authorities committed to advancing sustainable digital technologies.
  • Discuss and learn about cutting-edge solutions to harness green digital technologies in Europe.
