  • 1) Main message: overall neutral or positive effect on GHG emissions (transition to knowledge based low carbon economy) 2) Case studies feedback: Questions on incremental (travel/commuting, office efficiencies, transport/production) & disruptive changes (space: office & storage, innovation: external/crowd sourcing) Effects rarely planned, mostly assumed without evidence Travel/commuting & office efficiencies mostly assumed (3-4 out of 8) + vague assumption of overall positive effect due to increased productivity Disruptive effects neither planned nor even assumed (exception: KPN = -25% m2 of office space per employee) => Not recognised (yet) as a low carbon eco approach 3) Some facts - office (professional severives): 30-40% by travel/commuting, 50-60% electricity&heating, 5-10% paper (not evaluated: furniture, cantine, building itself) - manufacturing: supply chain and production: 70-95% of GHG emissions Only indirect effects evaluated, direct effects based on increased or different usage of ICT not covererd, eg. Intensified usage leads to more data center capacity requirements (= higher emissions) Potential cloud usage is more efficient vs. individual company data centers (lower emissions)
