The Sixth Assessment Report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change clearly shows that the time to act is now.
This event will focus on the ways of scaling up the EU's Twin Transition in order to put digital at the heart of the EU's Green transformation, and ultimately meet the Green Deal's ambitious objectives during the EU's Digital Decade.
Digital solutions are crucial in advancing the EU's agenda on sustainability. This is why European ICT companies have a duty to enable digital innovation with a purpose of greening ICT infrastructure, and addressing the potential trade-offs of fast-forward digitalization.
The action-oriented policy dialogue will focus on the framework conditions, policy innovations, and industrial solutions that can accelerate the greening of ICT infrastructure and ultimately guarantee the future of our planet.
This one-day event will take place in two parts, at the European Parliament during the first half, and in the Solvay Library for the second half.
We welcome policymakers, business leaders, environment experts, academics, civil society, and government officials to participate in this debate focusing on how can technology truly enable the EU in addressing climate change's impact.
The event questions we aim to answer:
· What are the necessary framework conditions to enable greening of ICT?
· How can policy innovations facilitate speed and scale for greening ICT?
· What are the industrial solutions/innovations that can have a big impact?
· What other innovations could help in making greening of ICT future-proof?
