  2. 2. Political context • Paris Agreement & EU sustainability objectives • Strong cross-border dimension of the cloud • Contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals EU sustainability targets compared to 1990 levels: 2020 2030 2050 Decrease in GHG emissions 20% 40% 80-95% (100% for energy sector) Renewable energy 20% 27->35% 75-97% Improvement in Energy efficiency 20% 27->35% 41% (vs 2005-6 peak)
  3. 3. DEI – Digital evolves with unprecedented speed 3 Autonomous driving Micro-electronics Smart Energy Digitalisation of society ICT greening other sectors …but ICT itself is polluting.
