Green IT for small and medium size enterprises

For SMEs with a substantial ICT infrastructure it is recommended to integrate the activities to improve the sustainability of the ICT infrastructure in the overall corporate strategy for a sustainable development.

The process of the introduction in the enterprise will be organized into several steps beginning with the strategic, organizational and political objectives. Accordingly in the action catalogue are measurements introduced, which do not have an impact on energy efficiency, environment and cost savings because these effects are not measurable. 

SMEs with a small ICT infrastructure can use the following steps to improve the sustainability of their ICT-Infrastructure:

  1. Identification of the current status with the help of the checklist on this website
  2. Identification of improvement options using the action catalogue
  3. Planning and preparation of the implementation of the actions
  4. Implementation of actions
  5. Evaluation of the impact of the implemented activities
