ARE YOU LOOKING TO GET INVOLVED IN A SUSTAINABLE IT INITIATIVE ?
In a context of climate urgency linked to the need for social justice, Sustainable IT has become an international challenge in a few years. Awareness of the environmental and social impacts of digital technology has accelerated, requiring organisations to reassess their digital strategy.
Many organisations, both public (local authorities, administrations, etc.) and private (companies, associations, etc.), want to rethink their digital roadmap in order to create the conditions for a digital strategy that is sustainable for the planet and beneficial to all.
In this sense, the Sustainable IT Charter is a first step towards a more virtuous digital world.
The text of the charter summarises the commitments made by the signatory to move towards a more Sustainable IT approach. Although this approach is not subject to audit, it commits each signatory, in a public manner, to do everything possible to enter into a Sustainable IT approach.
Signing the Sustainable IT Charter allows the organisation to communicate internally and externally about its quality approach and to join a network of organisations that are pioneers in change.

The Institute for Sustainable IT are present in France, Beglium and Switzerland
The INR/ISIT aims to reflect and act on the three key challenges towards a more sustainable IT : the reduction of the (economic, social and environmental) footprint of digital technology, the capacity of digital technology to reduce the (economic, social and environmental) footprint of humanity, and the creation of sustainable value/responsible innovation via digital technology in order to achieve the e-inclusion of all.
The INR develops, in the interest of all, a close interdisciplinary cooperation between actors of civil life, social and solidarity economy, teachers, researchers, public, private and associative actors for the anticipation and the appropriation of the stakes and values of Sustainable IT.
Our action is always guided by the 3Ps: People, Planet, Prosperity. The Triple Bottom Line reminds us that organisations must think of their organisation in terms of social issues and the climate emergency, while remaining economically viable.
Sustainable IT is, in our view, digital that is able to offer solutions/innovations that are sustainable for the planet, ethical and inclusive, i.e. that respect and include the greatest number of people.
