ICTFOOTPRINT.eu: Green ICT – in practice - ICTFOOTPRINT.eu
ICTFOOTPRINT.eu raises awareness on metrics, methodologies and best practices in measuring the energy and environmental efficiency of the ICT-sector, in order to facilitate their broad deployment and uptake.
ICT accounts for 8-10% of the EU’s electricity consumption and could save EUR 600 billion thanks to energy efficiency in 2020 by decreasing just 15% of its emissions.
The central goal of ICTFOOTPRINT.eu is therefore to help organisations, namely ICT-intensive SMEs, ICT Service Providers and public administrators in calculating their carbon footprint in an easy way, to decrease the environmental impact and to improve businesses' competitiveness.
