Workshop 8 - Presentation of support and guidance schemes for digital responsibility

held by Bpifrance and ADEME

In order to accelerate the transition process for companies, Bpifrance has structured a climate plan in three parts, two of which are aimed at its clients:

  • the expansion of actions in favour of solutions that accelerate the ecological transition: in particular, Bpifrance wishes to strongly support all companies developing digital products/services that favour decarbonisation and the reduction of the environmental impact of third parties, companies, public players and consumers;
  • the transition of companies themselves, in order to make their activity compatible with the carbon neutrality objectives of the Paris Agreement: in fact, Bpifrance has developed a range of tools to promote these approaches, based on dedicated financing and support, alongside partners.
  • bringing our internal practices in line with our climate objectives: Bpifrance is also working on reducing the environmental impact of its digital practices.

For information, Bpifrance has announced a global plan of €40M alongside the Banque des territoires: https://www.bpifrance.fr/A-la-une/Actualites/Plan-Climat-Bpifrance-et-la-Banque-des-Territoires-lancent-un-plan-de-40-Md-50528

In order to face the health, economic and social crisis linked to Covid-19, the government presented on September 3, 2020 a "France recovery" plan aiming at quickly and durably recovering the French economy around 3 main components: ecology, competitiveness and social and territorial cohesion.

As part of the deployment of the Recovery Plan in the territories, ADEME is offering French companies an "Eco-design" package that includes exceptional financial aid to finance their eco-design initiatives:

  • Aid for Research and Development (R&D) projects, via the PERFECTO call for projects
  • Aid for eco-design pre-diagnosis and environmental communication
  • Aid for eco-design assessments, studies for the implementation of an eco-design approach and associated investments.

This approach, which is based on a complete analysis of the life cycle of goods and services (LCA), involves the integration of environmental aspects from the design and development of products and services. It helps to limit pollution, save energy and raw materials, thus reducing pressure on resources, the environment and greenhouse gas emissions.

All production sectors are concerned and eligible. However, the focus is on digital services, considering the speed of deployment of these services, and their potential environmental impacts.

With the "Eco-design" pack, ADEME is giving a new impetus to sustainable production and the marketing of eco-designed products, goods and services with high environmental performance.

Workshop 7 - Introduction to measuring the environmental impact of digital organisations

In 2019, digital is responsible for 4% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and this share could double by 2025. Other significant impacts include energy, water, biodiversity and natural resources. There is an adage that says "what cannot be measured cannot be improved".

During this workshop, we will present the key concepts related to measuring the environmental impact of digital organisations. We will also explore the different tools that can be used to launch an informed and effective measurement / monitoring strategy for digital infrastructures (datacenter, network, workplace, cloud). Finally, we will discuss the challenges and benefits for the IT department in integrating this measurement into its strategy.

March 23rd

Workshop 6 - RESET, paths and levers for a sustainable digital future

Today's digital world is too voracious for tomorrow's world. The RESET collective programme, led by the Fing, proposes to identify concrete changes to be implemented in the short to medium term, within the framework of coalitions of heterogeneous actors: digital actors, public and private sponsors, users. The proposed workshop follows the methodology of coalition building: build a 2021 diagnosis, qualify the achievable impacts in 2 or 3 years, identify the actors and potential levers, define the common actions to be undertaken. Complementary to the other Planet Tech Care workshops, it provides keys to understanding and aims to define mobilising actions (legal, educational, technical, etc.).

Feb. 09th
