LET’S LOOK AROUND FOR A BETTER FUTURE
In schoolbooks, our descendants will read about how ” the Earth in those years was hit by a severe pandemic, later shaken by a war in Europe even more severe than those already going on in the various continents, and finally strangled by the energy crisis“.
They could, and certainly will, make one or more tragic or catastrophic films.
We, however, are living through it and no longer believe that better days are ahead of us any time soon.
So, not to distract ourselves but just to get some ideas that can spur us on towards the future, and while waiting for everyone to meet again at Silmo in Paris, here is some news that I think deserves further investigation.
KUBE-GREEN – It is an innovative open source application, created by the 100% Italian tech-company Mia-Platform, which enables a 30% reduction in the CO2 emissions of IT infrastructures by optimising their energy consumption. At a time when digitisation is bringing about major changes in society and organisations, there is a risk of forgetting the environmental impact of digital infrastructures, which today are responsible for 4% of CO2 emissions. A figure that, according to experts, is set to double by 2025 and reach 20% by 2050.
