WeNR is a tool for measuring the footprint of organisations’ IT systems.
This tool enables any type of organisation to analyse where the environmental impacts are and to measure their level of Sustainable IT maturity, based on the triptych People-Planet-Prosperity.
For this purpose, ISIT proposes a 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.
This questionnaire, available at wenrlight.org, allows to assess the level of maturity of organisations in terms of Digital Sustainability (People-Planet-Profit).
WeNR takes the form of a set of quantitative and qualitative questionnaires to be completed by each participating organisation, using a specific file template provided by the ISIT.
This questionnaire is accessible online until the 9 September 2022, the data is then treated confidentially and asynchronously with the results being submitted 2 to 3 months later in the form of a first level report.
This version of the tool is reserved for ISIT member organisations. WeNR + uses the standard WeNR model and calculator. It provides a comprehensive and detailed reports from a quantitative, qualitative and comparative point of view with organisations in the same sector.
The analysis tools provided allow for the identification of courses of action to establish a sustainable IT strategy.
WeNR is an ISIT project based on work carried out over several years over the 2014-2018 period: the business collective that preceded the creation of ISIT 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.
In partnership with La Rochelle University, EIGSI, Region Nouvelle-Aquitaine, DINUM and ADEME, the WeNR 2023 is based on the work of a thesis funded by the La Rochelle agglomeration and a scientific collaboration with the Swiss ISIT, the Belgian ISIT and the University of Louvain (UCLouvain).
WeNR also involves all the members of the ISIT in Europe to refine the calculation model created and enrich the WeNR engine with initial data.
