Workshop: Digital is Physical – Toward Sustainable Digitalisation

Workshop: Digital is Physical – Toward Sustainable Digitalisation

Date: October 20 2021
Time: 9 AM - 1 PM
NB! Workshop will be held in English.


Digital services may seem on the surface free from the usual sustainability issues associated with physical products and the manufacturing process. However, digitalization is often a powerful enabler that drives huge increases in consumption, energy use and pollution. How can we better understand the impact of our digital services and identify where changes can be made to improve the overall system sustainability.

In this Good Growth workshop we will cover Value Chain Mapping and Impact and Influence exercises as an experiential dip into the methodology and tools of Gofore’s new business model for sustainable digitalisation.
