How can the emission-reducing potential of digital solutions be harnessed?

Borderstep is supporting member of the European Green Digital Coalition

The Borderstep Institute has been a supporting member of the European Green Digital Coalition since December.

The European Green Digital Coalition (EGDC) is a business initiative supported by the European Commission and the European Parliament. It stems from a call by the EU Council to harness the emission-reducing potential of digital solutions for all diverse sectors.

Green and digital transformation of the EU

The EGDC was founded in March 2021 by the CEOs of 26 ICT companies. They signed a declaration in support of the EU’s green and digital transformation. The declaration recognizes the ICT sector as an important player in the fight against climate change. The signatories pledge to contribute to the success of the green digital transformation in the EU and beyond.

Borderstep supports EGDC Working Groups

In the EGDC, the Borderstep Institute supports, among others, the working groups that discuss, for example,

  • how avoided emissions of a digital technology can be accounted for
  • how the emissions caused by a digital technology can be accounted for.

To this end, Borderstep regularly participates in discussion groups free of charge and contributes its case studies and experience from many years of research in the field of digitisation and sustainability.
