Our position on sustainable digital infrastructure

Our Core Beliefs

Our position on sustainable digital infrastructure

The SDIA has assessed digital infrastructure in Europe and derived a number of fundamental positions, beliefs, and principles. In our view, these are our foundations of a sustainable digital infrastructure. It is our goal to ensure the development of a vibrant European digital economy that is inclusive, fair, and has a positive impact on the environment. Our definition of digital infrastructure consists of the entire value chain, from energy, to buildings & fiber networks to data centers, server equipment and software applications.
