ICTFOOTPRINT.eu, EU Framework Initiative for Energy & Environmental Efficiency in the ICT Sector aims to deliver a practical response to the outcome of the pilot study conducted by the EC back in 2013 for the adoption of ICT footprint calculation methodologies. Too many organisations, whilst wanting more energy-efficient products & services do not know where to start nor have the adequate time or resources to pursue this efficiently. The project aims to change this by raising awareness but at the same time create an ecosystem allowing a win-win approach to end-users or providers of ICT services (including data centres & networks), ICT large players, SDOs, Public Authorities & Legislators.
Specific Goals include:
Create an LCE Support Framework Platform informing end-users, agnostically, of ICT specific methodologies available & support them
Create a marketplace of opportunities for solution providers in ICT energy & environmental efficiency
Deliver a tool allowing SMEs, to make an assessment of their carbon footprint
Interface & engage with relevant stakeholders to disseminate the methodologies
Produce the ICTFOOTPRINT.eu Policy Action Plan Strategy Report
Provide Sustainability-driven Mechanisms to involve & incentivize all players that are necessary to create the aforementioned ecosystem.
