  • Compare 2 – 3 % w/ aviation !!Only accounting for Energy consumption.!! Scarce resourcesCO2 can be discussed; but is surely aligned with financial aspects (energy consumption) Hard to compare with impact on scarce resources when building and damages to environment when disposing … LCA Hence models do exist with Proxies.Although resource scarcity may not be a direct concern for the CIO (inter)national authorities transform their concern into regulations.
  • And more specifically the Need for Green Corporate governance of ITLet us zoom on EU’s situation NGOs  public image pressureDèslorsquel’ITn’est pas directementsoumisàcespressions, maisquec’est au travers de l’organisationquel’ITreçoitcettepression, ilest important de s’assurerque les contriantesrégelmentairespercolentcorrectementversl’IT; ilfautdoncformaliser et assurer la bonne interaction des différentsintervenatns … c’est le coeur de la gouverance.Je ne parle pas encore de Green, (mêmesi je nommeici des rélemtnation en rapport avec la durabilité … soit le green dans un sens un peu plus large)Rk: UK… je vousrassure, il y a uneséried’initiativeseuropéennesoumondiales qui abordent le problème et aopportent des éléments de solution.
  • Re-inforcing again the need to orchestrate various profiles towards a single direction.Indépendamment des GHGs, celasignifieaussiquel’ITpeutêtregénérateurd’économiesopérationnellessubstanciellesGREEN-OF ITA few questions should be answered:What is priority for corporate ?Do I introduce new risks ?What are the side-effects ?Do I have enough maturity ?More?GREEN-BY ITSmart GridsSmart BuildingsSmart CitiesOptimizing transportationImproved Waste ManagementMore?
  • Need for all actors of the IT storyFirst two questions also highlight the need for comparing “pure CO2” and other GHGs% IT energy consumption in the servicing industry : 50 à 70 %We won’t enter here into the various models to help create some common ground for such publications; just bear in mind that although measuring Scope is not that easy to determine; not to speak when part of the computing power is virtualized to the cloud.Si l’onveut comparer différents DCs, ilestévidentqel’on a besoin d’un standard;Si l’onveutvoir son propre DC (sapropreinformatique) évoluer, il “suffit” de bien fixer son propre scope et s’ytenir.Highlight the fact that the graphic demonstrate a number of direct actors the (only) the energy consumption issue : Procurement chooses the Energy providers, Facilities build DC, Infra chooses and manages Equipments,… developers optimize CPU usage for a certain work to be achived (efficiency) while Analysts and business help making things effective.
  • By enlarging the thinking from pure (and limited) Green-IT to Sustainability, We enclose Finance … where the mmost obvious operational cost is energy; reducing energy consumption is fully aligned with financial performance.The Green-IT SGM framework is multidimensional :addresses 5 (IT) governance domainsanalyses the contingencies gathers various regulations under a single umbrellacalculates 5 maturity levelscomprises 4 phases keeping 3 perspectives in mind: 3PsGreen-IT when taken as part of more holistic Sustainability, becomes an enable for over-performance !!
  • We’ve see the biggest challenge is to align all stakeholders in a single direction.  ‘have to identify the precise list of stakeholders … and maybe append that list.4 reasons:MarketingAccuracy of Assessment – because holistic topic requires global reachingPrepare ground for change management - & set up the right network of communication.Who’s responsible for what ?

    4. 4. The environmental pressure • We are facing growing environmental challenges: o Global warming, o Resources scarcity, o Financial & Societal Crisis • Professional ICT and home electronics represent 2 to 3% of GHG and are responsible for massive toxic e-waste. • We need to reduce the environmental footprint of ICT. • Hopefully ICT is also an enabler to a low carbon economy.

Greening By IT … 98% A few Green-IT activities Greening Of IT … 2 -> 3 % Actions taken by an organization to lower IT environmental footprint. e.g.  Managing electrical power used by IT infrastructure  Managing wastes and consumables used by IT and related systems  Sustainable IT practices  Integrating and aligning with enterprise level carbon management targets and initiatives  Limiting CPU power  … ICT projects and products allowing a reduction of the global environmental footprint (*). e.g.  Environmental friendly practices (travel optimization / reduction, ...)  Water optimization in gardening  Integrating building automation & power management systems  Eco-driving  Home-energy monitoring (*) GeSI evaluates to 16,5% the potential for IT to help reducing industry GHG emissions. IT: 3% Other Industries: 97% Green of ICT Main focus : • Easy (operational) • Low hanging fruits Green by ICT Little attention today: • Broader scope • Higher potential Green-ict.com 26/09/2013 Green-IT @ ABE 8

    13. 13. Implementing Green-IT: SGM framework • The Green-IT Strategy, Governance and Maturity framework supports the organization from day 1. • Green-IT SGM is a pure governance methodology, it implements, monitors and controls: – The transformation of CSR or sustainable strategy into tactical Green-IT decisions at departmental level, – The convertion of tactical decisions into operational activities, – The Green-IT portfolio and dashboard of KPIs.

Bad ROI vs the move to a new datacenter in 2015. Move hardware to more efficient datacenter Facilities Ongoing Yes. As the maximum energy capacity is reached in DC1 and DC2 (actual electricity use @ approximately 80% of total available electricity). Usage of collocation datacenter premises (lower PUE, around 1,5) Plan new datacenter (more efficient) Facilities Ongoing Done, waiting for implementation decision (country).
