The Green ICT project builds climate-consciousness in IT

In total, various ICT solutions are responsible for between 4 and 10 per cent of the global annual electricity consumption, and three to five per cent of global greenhouse emissions. With the right actions, however, the carbon footprint of a single ICT service can be reduced by up to 90 per cent. The Finnish Information Society Development Centre (TIEKE), the Finnish Information Processing Association (TIVIA) and LUT University have launched a two-year Green ICT project funded by the Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council, in which we accelerate carbon neutral digital services and procurement of businesses and the public sector in the Helsinki-Uusimaa region of Finland.

Digitalisation is leading us towards a cleaner future

Artificial intelligence, data and high-speed networks are needed for making the circular economy a reality, for carbon balance monitoring, for the implementation of low-emission transport, work and housing, and for supporting climate action by citizens. At the same time, however, the environmental load of digitalisation must be reduced.
