How to ecodesign digital services? Focus on the GreenConcept project

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

The demand for more efficient products to reduce energy and resource consumption is growing. The fast development of digital services and the increasing quantity of data is having a significant impact on our environment, such as GHG emissions, energy consumption, electronic waste production, and resources depletion....

It is imperative to search for new design solutions that are environmentally friendly and result in a reduction in the consumption of materials and energy. Ecodesign is an approach to designing products with the special consideration of environmental impacts associated with all stages of product’s LCA (Life-cycle assessment). However, the questions are as follows; how to assess the environmental impact of a digital service with a LCA methodology? How to build an improvement action plan of impact reduction? How companies can handle together digital transformation and environmental performance?

This ICTFOOTPRINT.eu webinar gathered together five passionate experts, who explained how to incorporate eco-design into ICT services. The GreenConcept project was presented, which helps small & medium companies to implement the principles of ecodesign into the development of their digital services (web site, social network, IOT appliance, platform...).

Caroline Vateau (Senior Consultant at NEUTREO and General Secretary of Alliance Green IT) and Damien Prunel (Ecodesign Consultant at Bureau Veritas) CODDE explained the method of how to ecodesign a digital service based on the white paper from Alliance Green IT.

Christophe Fernique, in charge of the environmental issues at the Occitanie Chamber of Commerce, explained in detail the GreenConcept project from the origin to the first results.

Sebastien Bernis (CEO of BSWEB - webmarketing appliance) and Valentin Girard (Specialist in embedded systems and RFID technology at ELA INNOVATION - IOT based appliance), shared their experiences on the GreenConcept project.

The webinar is moderated by Silvana Muscella (Project Coordinator of ICTFOOTPRINT.eu and CEO of Trust-IT Services) who has a broad experience in stimulating topics in the ICT sector. In recent years, her drive has been in motivating her team to turn their expertise into developing useful ICT tools and services for smaller companies, alike Trust-IT, in the ICT sectors for energy efficiency, cloud procurement and cybersecurity, and providing online tools for making cloud computing easier, particularly for novices.

The 1-hour webinar is free and open to all
