Sustainable Data Usage

Digital technologies now emit 4% of greenhouse gas emissions, i.e. the equivalent of all air traffic. This energy consumption is increasing by 9% a year. - theshiftproject.org

A significant fraction of CO2 emissions associated with IT-systems is attributed to data usage. Thus we must face the difficult question of how to make our systems as sustainable as possible.

Identification of potentials for making data usage in systems more sustainable. Implementation of suitable measures followed by best possible attempts of quantifying their impact.

Goals are maximizing effectiveness and efficiency of resource utilization while minimizing resource consumption and harmful emissions.

In the spirit of the Green-IT Movement we strive to champion and accelerate necessary change towards a sustainable future. Every efforts counts.
