Sustainability and AI

The Sustainability and AI acceleration program by Orange Fab

A season resulting from a Challenge in partnership with VivaTechnology.

Every year, VivaTechnology launches a series of Challenges with its partners. This is an opportunity for start-ups to compete on future-oriented themes.

For the 2023 session, Orange challenged start-ups to think about Sustainability and Artificial Intelligence, a theme that echoes the Group’s Lead the Future_ strategic plan, which places social and environmental responsibility at the heart of its projects, and the Group’s goal of becoming Net Zero Carbon by 2040.

The solutions proposed by the winning start-ups address issues as diverse as the decarbonization of IT, websites and buildings, energy management in factories and carbon contribution.
