About this event
Thursday 3 June, 2021, 16.30 - 18.00 C.E.T
Scaleway’s President, Arnaud de Bermingham, will be joined by key stakeholders from the water sector, sustainable computing research, and French and EU level law-makers including:
We also expect French Member of Parliament Vincent Thiébaut, rapporteur on a “digital and environment” law proposal, to deliver a keynote. 🚀
Different horizons, one goal - bringing the issue of water consumption in data centers to the table.
This topic, often taboo, is overlooked in most discussions concerning the digital sector’s environmental footprint. Our roundtable aims to reach a common understanding on the current situation, the challenges faced, and perspectives for change. Speakers will focus on the business mindset, technological innovations and regulations - with the obvious aim being to find a way to preserve one of the most vital, and yet threatened, common resources that humanity has to look after on our blue planet.
This is not only an invitation to the roundtable, but also an invitation to think outside the box!
