Digital technologies will play a key role in achieving the European Green Deal goals, ensuring a resource-efficient and climate-neutral Europe by 2050.
Digital technologies will play a key role in achieving the European Green Deal goals, ensuring a resource-efficient and climate-neutral Europe by 2050. 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!
To promote sustainable transformation, Digital for Planet calls for organisations and individuals to join forces to advance green digital technologies that do not harm our planet.
The workshop will bring together top experts from industry, academia, and policy makers to discuss and showcase solutions that will allow our society to harness green digital technologies and reach the European Green Deal objectives.
