The Green ICT ecosystem, promoting sustainable ICT services, products and processes in organisations, began operations in Finland on 1 June 2022. The professional network is open to anyone developing or purchasing ICT services.
We aid small manufacturing businesses in the region of Central Finland to reduce their carbon emissions.
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.
