Gain Digital Advantage
Digitech is an 18-month Strategic Partnership aiming at developing a new web application as well as a platform that will catalyze and facilitate collaborations between NGOs, Associations, Social enterprises and entrepreneurs in creating partnerships and developing projects with a positive climate impact.
The European Commission appealed to entrepreneurs to develop green business models and reduce their emissions (EC 2020) in order to reset the economic recovery on a greener path. The Third and the private sector are playing a huge role in global carbon emissions and more companies have growing emissions as we are recovering from the economic lockdown caused by the pandemic.
Facing the transformation
The Role of European Entrepreneurs
European entrepreneurs play a critical role in developing green business ideas; however, they face many hurdles in building their capacity: limited financial resources, organizational and networking capacity, and limited access to some sources of knowledge.
A Circular Economy
The Climate Law
In 2020 the EU announced its first-ever Climate Law.
It is ambitious, far-reaching and will impact almost all sectors of the economy. The climate law focuses on establishing a circular economy, eliminate pollution, safeguard biodiversity, and all this while creating plenty of opportunities in the green sector. The climate law will have major structural implications for the EU economy in the coming decades, impacting everything from the way we produce and use power, to how we travel, heat our homes, and even how we eat. This will provide significant opportunities for NGOs Associations, Social enterprises that are well placed to support the transition.
Understanding how these policies can affect companies and organizations will be key to them. We identified two obstacles many NGOs, association entrepreneurs face:
What we want to achieve
Building the capacity of organizations and training providers to develop, conduct, and evaluate climate-focused projects.
Improving the competences of educators and other adult education staff by connecting them with apps and other technologies they can use to measure their carbon emissions in their future activities/projects.
Reinforcing NGOs, associations, social enterprises’ skills and ability to better communicate the climate impact of their economic activity.
Developing new software and applications for measuring the carbon footprint of projects and organizations which can be used in other contexts Methodology / Activities Building an overview of how NGOs, associations and social enterprises can combine their efforts, through a series of meetings involving representatives from the local communities.
