The label for organizations that are committed to responsible, ethical, and inclusive IT
The digital transformation is revolutionizing business. But IT isn’t a virtual industry. The environmental challenges that come with the digital transformation are all too often neglected.
The environmental impact of IT risks becoming even more severe due to booming energy consumption, increased greenhouse gas emissions and water and air pollution, depletion of non-renewable natural resources, faster loss of biodiversity, and the growing difficulty of managing issues like mining, end-of-life devices, and other issues.
Sustainable IT is a continuous improvement strategy that aims to shrink the environmental, economic, and social footprint of information and communication technologies (ICTs).
Join a community of organizations working to reduce the environmental impact of IT.

The challenges of IT
The digital transformation is revolutionizing our societies, our businesses, and traditional production and consumption models. But IT isn’t a virtual industry!
When it comes to the environmental impact of IT, resource mining and the process of turning those resources into electronic components are by far the biggest culprits, closely followed by pollution from end-of-life electronics.
A few figures reveal what’s at stake:

Labeling audit and 3-year action plan to reduce the environmental impact of IT
Your SIT strategy will be subjected to a half-day remote audit by an expert from Agence
LUCIE or Baker Tilly, following a documentary audit.
Your strategy will be subjected to an on-site audit by Bureau Veritas or SGS. In both cases, you will receive an audit report with your score out of 1000 points, a detailed audit of each principle of action, and recommendations on how to make progress.
Your company will then make commitments to reduce the impact of digital with a 3-year action plan.
Earning the Sustainable IT label
If you score more than 300 points, your organization will receive the SIT label – level 1 for 2 years. You will then have one month to define your action plan to develop your SIT commitment .
To obtain the label, the audit report and your commitments will be sent to the labeling committee. The labeling committee, which is administered by the ISIT and Agence Lucie, is an independent body of digital experts. It determines whether or not to award the label if the company earns a score of at least 500/1000.
