industry 5.0 a revolution for environmental protection

Industry 5.0 is the title of the report that the European Commission published in January 2021. "Towards a sustainable, human-centric and resilient European industry". A more cultural than technological revolution for the protection of the environment.  


Cop26 meetings and communications campaigns of which the EWWR (European Week for Waste Reduction) are already underway and we see it in this period. Among their various objectives, they raise awareness on sustainability and the correct management of invisible waste. The creation of a new intelligent society, able to recognize the innovations of the fourth industrial revolution but is also careful to solve socio-environmental problems due to technological progress. A program that includes among the political initiatives related to industry, technological regulation through a different approach in respect of improving the quality of life of every citizen. 


Industry 5.0 optimizes energy consumption and emissions due to the use of the internet, avoiding the increase ofpollution so-called sleepy. One of the still little-known issues that will be addressed again by the EWWR on 20 - 28 November 2021. In the 2020 edition of the European Week for Waste Reduction, the proposal was made to raise awareness of the environmental impact due to the continuous use of the internet, data centers, servers, power cables, the lack of user friendly websites and etc ... with the consequence of an increase of the energy demand.  


A variant that determines the environmental impact of companies on climate change is the footprint which is talked about a lot in the meetings mentioned above. It is thatFingerprint which is left when we interact online via email, work in the cloud, search on google and is capable of producing different amounts of CO2 emissions.  


Today, it must be admitted, we are aware that those who contribute extensively to the uploading of content on the net are the most adult generation. The latter has seen the birth and growth of industry 4.0 and still struggles to consider the network as an environment to be respected in order to safeguard the climate and nature. If you just think that a very small percentage eliminates unused digital content ... 


It is therefore time to do the digital decluttering taking an example from the younger generation Z.
