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 Europe and Switzerland the electrical power consumption of ICT including consumer electronics amounts to about 10% of total consumption. With the application of intelligent "Green Information Technology" the increase in power consumption of the ICT operation can be contained or even reduced in spite of continuously increasing demand.
