Abstract

The impact of our ecological mark linked to the uncontrolled growth rate of digital technology is leading to an aggravation of existing environmental imbalances. With this in mind, this paper intends to investigate the causes of the ‘lost innocence’ of the digital world also through an analytical reconstruction of phenomena that until recently were perceived as immaterial means, absolutely non-invasive for the environment and with extraordinary potential for progress, democratisation and economic growth. Today, digitalisation is compromised by the weight of rampant pollution from which it cannot escape. In recent years, there has been a proliferation of a growing body of literature on issues related to the environmental impact of TIC: digital media are assessed as pollution factors that play an increasingly relevant role in the global ecological crisis.
Digital has been associated with immateriality, lightness, even in some studies as being synonymous with green action.
Communication technologies, by revealing their physicality [Balbi, 2016] [1], have an obligation to remedy an environmental pollution that is global, uncontrollable and unstoppable.
