Title FAIR data and Net Zero: exploring the interactions
Abstract The implications of the push towards FAIR data for progress towards Net Zero carbon emissions in Digital Research Infrastructures (DRIs) have not been much considered. Given the global importance of both these trends, it is certainly worth asking the question “What could be the effect of widespread uptake of FAIR data on the carbon footprint of DRIs?” There might be effects in both directions: easier reuse of data and avoidance of duplication of effort might be countered by the greater power needs of the FAIR data system of resources. The question is complex, but in this paper we present an approach to conceptualising and modelling the interplay between FAIR and Net Zero using Causal Loop Diagrams, and highlight some initial conclusions and open issues.
