With Green IT towards a sustainable future

The ICT sector contributes approximately 2% to global man-made CO2 emissions, which is roughly equivalent to that of international air traffic. In Europe and Switzerland, the ICT, together with the entertainment electronics sector, needs about 10% of the total electricity consumption. Through intelligent "green" IT, despite the growing demand for ICT infrastructure, the increase in electricity consumption can be limited or even reduced.
