How to activate the circular economy in the IT industry?
Digital technology is changing our lifestyles, work and society. It is often perceived as an essential element of progress, or even as an essential tool to meet the challenges and issues of sustainable development. However, the impact of digital technologies on the environment is far from neutral: the scarcity of raw materials, the energy needs and waste generation are subjects that must be solved. The circular economy is an essential concept to meet the challenges of this transition.
To help you ask the right questions during the innovation and design processes of digital equipment and services, and find the right answers, we offer this training.
This training is open to managers, engineers, consultants or independants in the IT industry.
