#1 Governance 

Because your chairman has already embraced Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and made the sustainable transition part of the group’s strategy.

Perhaps a non-financial report already consolidates a few performance KPIs, quantifies GHG emissions from scopes 1 and 2 and also discloses a few clues about scope 3 (compulsory in France since January 2023)!

There’s probably no mention of the digital sector, but not for much longer…

The obligatory exercise in transparency of the digital sector’s environmental impact is coming tomorrow!

#2 Exemplarity 

Because your ecosystem is showing its demands: your customers and partners are asking you about your proof of sustainable actions and your employees, particularly the new talents of the younger generation, are looking to deepen the company’s social responsibility. 

These are all clear signs, not of a fad, but of a fundamental issue that is gaining momentum.

And, as an individual, you too are no doubt convinced of the need to understand in order to act!

#3 Responsibility 

Because you notice that the convergence of sustainable and digital transitions is underway and taking shape.

Many associative and professional players are mobilising to support the process.

And you also need to have a detailed opinion to respond to requests from your community!

#4 Compliance

Because you’ve noticed that politicians are looking into the matter and that regulations are taking shape (FR & EU) and will be imposed very soon.

It might be a good idea to get to grips with digital sustainability, to get ahead of the game before it catches up with you!

# 5 Action

Because you are aware that the unbridled digital transformation of companies is fuelling and accelerating invisible but very real digital pollution!

And who better than the CIO and its organisation to take stock of the situation and steer a long-term impact plan towards a sustainable digital future?
