What's up in Green IT 2018

What's up in Green IT 2018

ICT industries play an important role when it comes to sustainability. On the one hand they consume a lot of energy and create huge amounts of excess heat, not to mention eWaste. But at the same time these same two industries may very well hold the key to solving a number of environmental issues with which we are currently struggling. Because they make it possible to Green our IT usage and at the same time offer innovative ways to Green other sectors and industries by using smart IT. 

Green IT Global has published an overview of best practices in the field of Green IT. By doing so, the organisation - a multi-country alliance on Green IT in practice between Alliance Green IT (France), Green IT Amsterdam (the Netherlands), Green IT SIG (Switzerland) and Sustainability for London (United Kingdom) - aims to give an impulse to making the ICT industry in general and data centres in particular more sustainable.

The best practice examples are grouped around the focal points of: Green IT Strategy, Circular Economy and Ecodesign, Datacenters and Networks, Awareness and Education, Green by IT (IT for Green), Recent Policy Developments.

This resource will benefit IT professionals in the private and public sectors, as well as policy makers and researchers, by providing guidance and inspiring examples of Green IT successes. Whether you are looking to update existing systems and practices or are just getting started with a low-impact approach to IT, this resource offers examples to adopt, adapt, and be inspired by.


The aim of this publication, and GRIG’s mission, is to be the ecosystem of knowledge and innovation on Green IT, and a driving force for innovation and sustainability. A collaboration drawing on the expertise of our member organizations in France, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK has led to the publication of this resource, to support readers in their own Green IT ambitions. All four work very hard to improve sustainability - by promoting Green IT, by participating in research and innovation projects and by helping both governments and businesses to be able to access relevant Green IT technology. In other words: we are creating a global Green IT eco system. 

These projects were very successful. But there is (much) more to be done. Which is why we hope that after reading this document you feel inspired to increase your own efforts to drastically improve the environmental impact of your own business or your own city or region.
