A qualitative and quantitative questionnaire.

WeNR is a new tool for measuring the footprint of organisations’ IT systems.

This tool enables any type of organisation to analyse where the impacts are and to measure their level of Sustainable IT maturity, based on the triptych People-Planet-Prosperity.

For this purpose, INR proposes an open access tool based on open and public data.

This questionnaire allows you to evaluate your equipment, your data centers, your use of the Cloud and to assess the overall maturity of your organisation when it comes to Sustainable IT.

Sessions are closed for 2021. Next session will occur in March 2022. The results of the public study will be released on the 16th of December.

Our Tool

WeNR is a tool that comes in 3 versions to meet the needs of as many organisations as possible: from the qualitative maturity audit to the comparative audit by sector of activity, detailed quantitative and actionable.



WeNR is an INR project based on work carried out over several years over the 2014-2018 period: the INR (then called Club Green IT) produced three successive benchmarks in 2016, 2017 and 2018 to calculate the environmental footprint of the digital footprint of major French companies. In 2018, the benchmark led to the release of the WeGreenIT study produced in partnership with WWF and handed over in person in 2019 to Ms. Brune Poirson, Secretary of State for Ecological Transition.


WeNR has set INR on a path of sustainable measurement: its calculation engine uses the same methodological framework as the benchmark carried out in 2018. This strong technical base on which INR relies allows WeNR to reposition itself within an ambitious and evolving reference framework.

The contributors

This INR project will be one of the highlights of 2021. In partnership with La Rochelle University, EIGSI and Region Nouvelle-Aquitaine, the WeNR 2021 is based on the work of a thesis funded by the La Rochelle agglomeration and a scientific collaboration with the Swiss INR, the Belgian INR and the University of Louvain (UCLouvain).


WeNR also involves all the members of the INR to refine the calculation model created and enrich the WeNR engine with initial data.
