|Energy efficiency in ICT can allow savings of 25% or more while server’s consolidation can help you save up to 50% (learn more here). This is the potential of a sustainable ICT approach, an increasingly relevant topic to European SMEs and organisations, especially in terms of their impact on the environment. If you are looking to improve energy efficiency in your ICT business, then sign up and be a key player in the EU Project ICTFOOTPRINT.eu is the key.
In August 2016, the project launched its ICTFOOTPRINT marketplace
(learn more here
) where ICT solutions providers and organisations interested in finding an ICT solution could virtually meet with the objectives of safeguarding the environment while cutting energy-related costs.
At the same time, the marketplace allows all potential buyers that are buying ICT solutions, which are low on carbon footprint. But this was just the first step along the path to finally reduce the environmental impact of ICT.
ICTFOOTPRINT.eu sustains the use of standard methodologies and transparent procedures to calculate CO2 footprint. In fact, ICTFOOTPRINT will hold a free webinar
about ICT Standards for Data Centres and ICT Sustainability
on 20th December
2016, open to all those with an interest in becoming more sustainable in their ICT. During the 1-hour webinar, Lance Rϋtimann
(Vice President of The Green Grid) will share his views and tips, on how the European EN 50600 Series of Standards came about as a motivation to deliver a comprehensive EN standard for Data centres to help rise to the challenge of various situations such as one room to multiple building facilities and diverse business models with individual complexities.
Joe Baguley (Vice President & Chief Technology Officer, EMEA at VMware) will provide us with stimulating insights on some major recommendations that VMWare works on whilst minimising its ICT corporate footprint, described in VMware's Global Impact Report 2015 - Force for Good. Moreover, Jean Manuel Canet, rapporteur of ITU-T Study Group 5, from Orange, will intervene introducing ITU-T methodologies.
