The EU agenda connects the green and the digital transitions (‘twin transitions’). The potential of data for sustainability features prominently, while it’s also stressed that we need to quantify and reduce the environmental footprint of data operations. Furthermore, new EU legislation is being designed to serve sustainability purposes.

The session will discuss the potential of data for sustainability and the related challenges and look at recent policy developments including Data Act, the novel construct of ‘digital product passports’ (to make product-related data available through the product value chain) and Corporate Sustainability Reporting (that requires companies to provide information on their impact on sustainability matters).
