European Parliament Public Hearing

On January 27, 2021, I had the pleasure and honor to join the European Parliament’s AIDA Committee in a discussion on Artificial Intelligence and its role in delivering on the EU’s Green Deal. The recording of the 3h hearing is available on the EP’s multimedia platform. My input during the second panel focused on the environmental impact of digital and web technologies and I argued that we need to make transparent reporting on all three scopes of the Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHG) Protocol mandatory for the digital sector. Otherwise, we’ll be hard pressed to understand whether or not these technologies are indeed creating a net-positive value for the environment, let alone put ourselves to properly mitigate their impact.
