The European Green Digital Coalition gets a boost

Leading associations Global Enabling Sustainability Initiative (GeSI), European DIGITAL SME Alliance, DIGITALEUROPE, ETNO, GSMA are pleased to announce that they were awarded by European Commission the European Parliament Pilot project. These associations will work with the European Green Digital Coalition (EGDC) to reach the objectives of the EGDC founding members’ Declaration.

This Declaration is now signed by 76 companies active in Europe, 31 current EGDC members and additional 45 SMEs applying for membership, which aim to develop an agreed methodology to measure the net impact of green digital technologies, along with promoting their uptake across sectors of the economy and society.

While the need for a twin transition is a top political priority for the European Union, there is still no common framework for assessing the environmental benefits and net impacts of digitally enabled solutions. This European Parliament Pilot Project will set up governance and cooperation mechanisms that will bring together current and future members of the EGDC as well as top experts and EU institutions to agree on a science-based approach to maximise the benefits of green digital twin transition. This will form the foundation of Europe’s twin transition towards climate neutrality and digital leadership.

To achieve these objectives, the consortium led by GeSI will work together with expert organisations Carbon Trust, Deloitte, and Sustainable ICT Consulting. The Pilot Project will take place over two years and aims at delivering the first results already in 2022.
