Recommendation : 6. Enabling users to reduce their impacts
Does the service's use make it possible to consider software or hardware configurations that have less impact on the environment ?
In the user research, have any technical, material or human constraints that would require an adapted version of the service been identified?
User's equipement is increasingly more efficient and digital services utilize these technical capacities. This emphasizes the digital gap by excluding some of the users who cannot afford these expensive terminals. It is therefore important to question the usefulness of using these technologies to achieve the finality of digital service while allowing access to a majority.
Rule for assessing the level of compliance of the criterion
