DIGITAL ECOLOGY

A RESPONSE TO DIGITAL POLLUTION CREATED BY A FRENCH WOMEN.

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.

A HUMAN AND TECHNOLOGICAL SCIENCE

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.

A DEMOCRATIC DISCIPLINE AND IN CONSTANT EVOLUTION

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.

TWO OBJECTIVES

  1. Limit the harmful effects of digital on the environment: electricity consumption, management of rare and critical metals, reduction of carbon emission of physical matter or digital circular economy policy.
  2. The most possible benefits to as many people as possible: any approach to digital ecology combines economic success, inclusion and social climbing.
