The EGDC pilot project will provide science-based methods to estimate the net environmental impact of real-life digital solutions across sectors (see identified priority sectors below) – that is both the positive contribution (e.g. carbon reduction) and the direct footprint of a given digital solution.
To gather further expertise and validate its methodologies, the Consortium has launched five Working Groups, led by Coalition members, and established an Advisory Board comprised of global experts. Further, the Consortium will engage in extensive consultations with key experts from research, academia, and the industry.
Based on the developed methods to estimate the environmental benefits of digitalisation, the EGDC Pilot project will create recommendations for green digital transformation across sectors and promote a widespread take-up by industry players, including SMEs.
