Digital Ecology® is an environmental and technological concept developed by Inès Leonarduzzi, digital sobriety expert and founder of DIGITAL FOR THE PLANET.
In addition to the pollution induced by the manufacture of electronic devices, their uses and poor management of recycling, digital technology creates ever greater social divisions.
Digital ecology is a response to the three pollution sources defined by Digital For The Planet: atmospheric, human and societal.
For each type of pollution, DIGITAL FOR THE PLANET offers operational solutions, understandable and co-constructed according to the contexts.
Digital ecology is both an environmental and technological discipline studying the impact of digital industries on different ecosystems whose objective is to optimize the human - machine - environment relationship.
Based on the 1992 United Nations definition of sustainable development at the Earth Summit, digital ecology is a breadcrumb trail to a new kind of digital: measurement and collective progress.
It proposes a forward-looking and technological approach in the development of digital tools, including machine learning and blockchain solutions, focused on social impact and the environment.
In our opinion, progress is useless if the human does not progress.
In 2018, Digital For The Planet conducts the first institutional study on digital pollution and digital ecology among French people, in collaboration with the Occurrence research department :
