With Green IT towards a sustainable future
The ICT area contributes world-wide to about 2% of the green house gases generated by humans, equivalent to the emissions of the airlines industry. In Switzerland, a country with a high density of ICT suppliers and ICT users, the electrical power consumption of ICT reaches already about 10% of total consumption. With the application of intelligent "Green Information Technology" the increase in power consumption of the ICT applications can be contained or even reduced in spite of continuously increasing demand.
With this website of the Swiss Informatics Society, we want to assist the professionals in the ICT domain, managers in small and large companies and organizations as well as politicians and other decision makers to make a contribution to sustainability at their work place, at home and for society as a whole.
