NWoW4Net-Zero - or how to achieve Net Zero in HR

European project
March 2022 to February 2024

The NWoW4Net-Zero project aims to position HRDs as key players in contributing to the EU's ambition of carbon neutrality by 2050.  NwoW4Net-Zero aims to give them concrete levers for action to drive the transition in their areas of intervention, and to take advantage of the new ways of working (New Ways of Working or NWoW), workplaces and organizations resulting from the increased use of digital solutions. The aim of the project is to develop a series of action toolkits, a training pathway and a knowledge-sharing platform.  This 24-month Erasmus+-supported project brings together 5 partners, including POUR LA SOLIDARITE-PLS.


The European Union's strategy is to be the first continent to achieve climate neutrality. Launched in 2019, the Green Pact for Europe commits member states to reducing net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The ambition is to fundamentally transform the economic system so that by 2050, member states will be carbon-neutral, with an intermediate target in 2030 of reducing EU GHG emissions by 55% compared to their 1990 level. New ways of organizing work in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and new digital solutions could represent an opportunity to contribute to this ambition.

Through NWoW4Net-Zero, three avenues are being explored to help HR achieve its carbon-neutral ambitions :

    NWoW: how can work be organized and hybridized to help reduce environmental impact ?
    Work-related mobility: what solutions can be implemented to reduce the carbon footprint of travel to and from work ?
    Digital: how can we reduce our carbon footprint through the responsible use of digital technologies in the workplace and in remote working ?

Expected results

    A training path presented in the form of three toolboxes: on NWoW, work-related mobility and digital.
    A methodology and training path for a learning experience tailored to the needs of each learner and their organization.
    An impact methodology and user guide.
    A knowledge platform, an interactive environment in which users can easily learn and obtain information and knowledge about new ways of working and how they can be introduced into organizations via HR.
