Many happy faces at the 2nd Belgian signing ceremony of the Sustainable IT Charter. This ceremony, which took place on 9 November at the Brussels Info Point, was organised by the Belgian Institute for Sustainable IT. This moment was not chosen at random, as COP26 is taking place in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November 2021.

After being welcomed by Olivier Vergeynst, director of the Belgian Institute for Sustainable IT, Brussels minister for digitalisation Bernard Clerfayt and Nicolas Locoge, director-general of the Brussels Regional Informatics Centre (BRIC), also took the floor and stressed the importance of this 'Sustainable IT' Charter.

Then each new signatory briefly explained why he had signed the charter. For large companies, but also for SMEs, associations and public authorities, it is the ideal way to record their ambitions to strive for more ethical, inclusive and environmentally friendly IT.

After 2 signing ceremonies, the counter is currently at 55, 17 of which are administrations from the Brussels region! The number is growing steadily. This allows to share best practices which is important to develop a sustainable digital Brussels-Capital Region.

Thank you to all the signatories!
