The increasing digitalisation does not only make our daily life easier but also causes changes in the environmental impact of our activities. The substitution of material-based services with digital services
The increasing digitalisation does not only make our daily life easier but also causes changes in the environmental impact of our activities. The substitution of material-based services with digital services – for example films or music – alters the environmental impact of our everyday activities and shifts visible material use to less visible digital services. A holistic life cycle assessment of digital transformation requires the assessment of information and communication technology (ICT) and takes into account possible substitution effects. Modelling of digital services and multifunctional devices are complex and the choice of assumptions for substitution has a crucial impact on the final assessment of digital transformation. The discussion of these topics in the LCA-community allows the evaluation of different approaches to the assessment of digital transformation.
This forum will cover the life cycle assessment of digital transformation with its wide range of devices and technologies as well as environmental implications of new services enabled by modern ICT.
