Why greentic ?
- ICT are now embedded in almost all parts of economy.
- The ICT sector itself is responsible for 2% of carbon emissions in Europe : 1.75% resulting from the use of ICT products and services, and 0.25% from their production.
- As part of its effort to combat climate change and drive economic recovery, the European Commission today called on Member States and industry to use information and communications technologies (ICT) to improve energy efficiency.
- The energy efficiency improvement enabled by these technologies is expected to allow a global CO2 emission reduction by up to 15%.
