Guy Hudson, Convenor   “ I nternational network for  C arbon  A ccounting  R eporting, and  R eduction in the  B uilt environment “   ICT Workgroup
ICARB Positioning: a clear need – to ensure consistent and therefore comparable carbon accounting At a formative stage
ICARB Questions What does this mean applied to ICT?  How do we achieve the objective?
Pushing at an open door ISO/BSI, the Carbon Trust and the supply chain Industry initiatives PAS2050 Solving the E-Waste Problem [StEP] Green Grid Climate Savers Computing Initiative [CSCI] The Information Age Partnership  [IAP] Market Transformation Programme [MTP]  Saving the climate @ the speed of light [SC@SoL]
ICARB  Consistent carbon accounting Scope is very large Deep but very narrow Divided up into – 10? workgroups
The world according to ICARB 2 Dimensions of the problem Sectors Scope Individuals Communities Cities Government Buildings ICT Footprinting
Footprinting Boundaries Calculation - Energy x Factor Opportunities for improvement Action [Offset] The Process
3 rd  Dimensions of the problem  Units, Metrics, Factors Datasets Boundaries For each sector. Each application level - identify parameters (organisations and projects considered in the sector subcommittees) Parameters
The ICT Workgroup? Steering Committee Sectors Scope Parameters
Identify Problem Generate Solutions Select Solutions Plan Test/ Rehearse Action Gather Data Analyse Data Achieving the objective - Solving the problem Define some  of the solution  characteristics
The solution will involve: Open source, Standards –based  Methodologies open and available to all Bookshelf  technology Using current standards for CO2 and CO2e calculations GHG Carbon Trust/DEFRA - PAS2050 ITIL => Meta standard: practical – defining the grey areas
5 Principles for calculating emissions Relevance Completeness Consistency Transparency Accuracy ‘ and the greatest of these is consistency’ The Greenhouse Gas Protocol World Resources Institute, report submitted to the IPCC)
Relevance The GHG inventory should reflect the GHG emissions of the organisation.  (ICT only of user organisation, but whole organisation of an ICT company)  It should serve the decision-making needs of users – both internal and external to the organisation. (Supply chain)
Completeness Account for and report on all GHG emission sources and activities within the chosen inventory boundary.  Disclose and justify any specific exclusions. Manufacture –  Use  – Dispose
Consistency Use consistent methodologies to allow for meaningful comparisons of emissions over time.  Document any changes to the data, inventory boundary, methods, or any other relevant factors in the time series.
Transparency   Disclose any relevant assumptions and make appropriate references to the accounting and calculation methodologies and data sources used.  Have a clear audit trail.
Accuracy Ensure that the quantification of GHG emissions is robust, and that uncertainties are reduced as far as practicable.  With sufficient accuracy to enable users to make decisions with reasonable confidence.
