Ivan Mariblanca Flinch has long questioned the place of technology in our daily lives. Optimistic but realistic by nature, his aim is to change the culture and use of digital technology on a global scale.
At the start of 2020, he embarked on his Digital Responsibility project. He started his Canopé project, where other people soon joined him in his vision of reducing the environmental footprint of technology. In just a few years, Canopé became the Swiss benchmark for Green IT and began to expand internationally.
Today, Ivan is one of 30 European experts recognised by the European Institute for Digital Responsibility. He is co-responsible for the scientific committeé of the Swiss Institute for Sustainable IT and is co-author of the report "Numérique responsable en entreprise: où en est la Suisse?".
Canopé currently supports large companies, SMEs and public administrations in their Green IT initiatives and certifications. In 2022, Canopé is taking the big step of offering a web platform, CircularIT, to automate the measurement and reduction of IT's environmental footprint, as well as raising employees' awareness of digital pollution and related good practices in a fun way. The platform is already available in 5 languages and is present in several countries.
CircularIT, the platform to decarbonize your IT
CircularIT is the all-in-one web platform for measuring and reducing the environmental footprint and cost of your information system. It aligns your digital and environmental objectives. It is available in English, French, German, Spanish and Catalan.
Our leitmotiv: rigour and security
Our database for measuring the environmental footprint contains more than 6,000 items of data and comes from many recognised sources. Our calculation methodology is based on the GHG Protocol standard. The entire life cycle of the equipment and its impact is presented using 4 environmental indicators.
Our entire platform and data are stored in Switzerland. This guarantees their security and privacy while limiting their environmental footprint.
