The Sustainable IT Label

Label available in Europe

The Sustainable IT Label demonstrates the professionalism of your Sustainable IT implementation

The Sustainable IT label, created by the French INR, is a validation factor for the global sustainable IT approach of the organisation and the motivation of the IT teams.
The Sustainable IT Label demonstrates the professionalism of your Sustainable IT implementation, that’s why the labeling process is quite demanding.

The Sustainable IT label is operated by Agence LUCIE, which accompanies you in each step of the process to enable you to obtain it.

It is now available in 2 levels and specialties in order to meet the needs of the largest number of companies.

Sustainable IT Label – level 1

Level 1 offers a 2-year labelling period. More accessible, it is composed of a 5-step labeling process :

  1. Join the Sustainable IT Community:
    Start the Sustainable IT labeling process by contacting the Agence LUCIE team.
  2. Sustainable IT MOOC and certificate:
    You must follow the MOOC designed by the INR, available free of charge online. Following the MOOC, you must take the Certification of Sustainable IT Knowledge of the INR and the University of La Rochelle to validate your learning.
  3. Self-assessment and preparation:
    Using the reference tool, you can self-assess your organisation’s level of commitment on Sustainable IT topics. At this stage, you can identify actions to develop your Sustainable IT commitment. Expert consultants in Sustainable IT can support you if you wish.
  4. Labeling audit:
    Your Sustainable IT initiative is then assessed remotely over half a day by an expert from the Agence LUCIE, following a documentary audit. You then receive an evaluation report with your score out of 1000 points, details of the evaluation by action principles and recommendations for progress.
  5. Obtaining the Sustainable IT label – level 1: 
    If you obtain more than 300 points, your organisation is labelled Sustainable IT – level 1 for a period of 2 years. You then have one month to define your action plan to develop your Sustainable IT commitment.

Sustainable IT Label – level 2

Level 2 offers a 3-year labeling period, it is composed of a 6-step labeling process :

  1. Join the Sustainable IT Community:
    Start the Sustainable IT labeling process by contacting the Agence LUCIE team.
  2. Training:
    During 3 days, an expert will train you on Sustainable IT for the first two days, and the last day on the labeling methodology. At the end of the training, you will leave with the tools and knowledge necessary to implement a Sustainable IT action plan, in a simple and concrete way, integrated into your CSR strategy. It is also possible to take the Sustainable IT Knowledge Certification from the INR and the University of La Rochelle following this training. The LUCIE Training Centre is a Qualiopi certified training organisation, which allows you to have the training funded by your OPCO.
  3. Self-assessment and preparation:
    Using the tools provided during the training, you self-assess the level of your organisation on the Sustainable IT topics. The company complies with the requirements of the Sustainable IT label. Expert consultants on Sustainable IT can accompany you if you wish.
  4. Labeling audit:
    Your Sustainable IT initiative is then assessed by SGS, Baker Tilly STREGO or Bureau Veritas Certification, which delivers its report to the Agence LUCIE and the company simultaneously. Your company then makes commitments to reduce the impact of digital technology in a 3-year Sustainable IT action plan.
  5. Obtaining the Sustainable IT label – level 2: 
    To obtain the Sustainable IT label, the evaluation report and the company’s commitments are sent to the labeling committee. Administered by INR and composed of Green IT experts, the labeling committee is independent and decides alone whether or not to award the label.
  6. Follow-up and renewal:
    If you are awarded the label, SGS, Bureau Veritas Certification or Baker Tilly STREGO will carry out a follow-up assessment after 18 months to review the implementation of your Green IT commitments.

The involvement of several parties in the process, the duration of the application and the guidance ensure the implementation of a long-lasting and coherent Sustainable IT policy within organisations.
