Previously Marc worked at the European Commission’s JRC-IES from 2005 to 2012 where his main assignment was to implement the “European Platform on Life Cycle Assessment” which formed the key basis for the European Commission’s ongoing Product and Organizational Environmental Footprint (PEF/OEF) pilots.
Marc’s role in the project is to lead the development on the method framework for including the life cycle based environmental performance of data centres and services into GPP via simple yet meaningful and robust indicators. Marc will moreover develop the evaluation method for the net achievement via EURECA-based improved procurement and the policy recommendations based on the project’s insights. Marc says: “My goal for EURECA is to substantially enhance the validity of green public procurement of datacenters and datacentes services by advancing existing metrics and indicators and enrich them with life cycle data to yield simple-to-obtain yet robust indicators of the datacenter’s environmental performance”.
