Learn More about the Ecological Impact of Office Production:
CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) is a major current concern, especially its "environmental" pillar.
To reduce their energy consumption, companies like Microsoft, after their environmental assessment, have decided to rethink their technologies and their usage to reduce energy consumption and the resulting carbon footprint. And Microsoft is not the only one! In a society undergoing digital transition, more and more companies are embracing this ecological awareness, known as "GREEN IT" or "Responsible Digital".
While it's crucial to emphasize that the first step towards responsible digital use is not to change electronic equipment (computers, smartphones, tablets, etc.) too frequently, or to recycle our devices with specialized companies, there's still progress to be made in daily professional use to protect the environment. It's easy to say, but when looking for a starting point, one can quickly get overwhelmed by tons of information.
