Zero water data centers by 2030: mission impossible?

On the occasion of the EU Green Week, Scaleway, in partnership with The Greentech Alliance, is delighted to invite you to a virtual round table discussion to discuss the  controversial issue of water consumption in data centres.

Scaleway’s President, Arnaud de Bermingham, will be joined by key stakeholders from the water sector, sustainable computing research, and French and EU level law-makers including:

  • Lubomila Jordanova (Co-Founder of The Greentech Alliance & founder and CEO of PlanA.Earth)
  • Marie-Laure Vercambre (Director General of the French Water Partnership)
  • David Mytton (sustainable cloud computing researcher at The Uptime Institute and Co-founder of Console)
  • Plus speakers from the European Commission and French tech-minded lawmakers

This topic, often taboo, is overlooked in most discussions concerning the digital sector’s environmental footprint. Our roundtable aims to reach a common understanding on the current situation, the challenges faced, and perspectives for change. Speakers will focus on the business mindset, technological innovations and regulations - with the obvious aim being to find a way to preserve one of the most vital, and yet threatened, common resources that humanity has to look after on our blue planet.

This is not only an invitation to the roundtable, but also an invitation to think outside the box!


Scaleway, the leading alternative European infrastructure and platform as-a-service provider (IaaS and PaaS), is catering to the global market with the essential mix of cloud computing resources that is flexible, cost effective, reliable, secure and sustainably powered.
