NegaOctet is a database, which gathers thousands of measurements carried out independently of manufacturers on computer components, which should make it possible to evaluate the impact of digital technology on climate change, resource depletion or waste production.
 
the database must become a “common tool”, comparable to the Nutri-Score for food, making it possible to meet the new obligations to display the environmental impacts of digital products, and to move towards “eco-design”.
 
Digital technology, responsible for 4% of global CO2 emissions in 2020
These new measures confirm the results obtained previously in the studies published by GreenIT, in particular, the predominant place of terminals (smartphones, TV) in the environmental footprint of digital, responsible for 4% of global greenhouse gas emissions in 2020
 
“It’s the culmination of three years of research work,” supported by the Agency for Ecological Transition (Ademe), added Marie-Elisabeth d’Ornano, director of certification at LCIE Bureau Veritas.

“We really needed, as a third party, to have opposable data and we didn’t have it. (…) The data is very open, we documented it, we had a critical review done, we want it to be robust and maintainable,” she added.

The authors of the project hope to market it worldwide, even if they recognize that the market is not yet mature for this type of analysis, due to the lack of harmonization of display requirements between countries.

The consortium also intends to feed the public database Impacts of Ademe, and “transfer within three years the ownership of the database” to an association to “ensure its openness and sustainability”.
