The aim of the ICTFOOTPRINT.eu project is to deliver a practical response to the barriers identified to the adoption of ICT footprint calculation methodologies among the European ICT sector. Previous observations showed that too many organisations, while wanting more energy-efficient products and services, do not know where to start nor have the adequate time or resources to pursue this efficiently.

To meet this target, several services are implemented in the scope of the ICTFOOTPRINT.eu project. The rationale is to raise awareness and at the same time create a network gathering end-users or providers of ICT services (including data centres & networks), ICT large players, SDOs, public authorities and legislators.

The deliverable provides with an assessment of the platform usage for the duration of the project, describes some key elements on how the project answered the key barriers identified in the ICT sector, and gives a brief prospective look for the next years, beyond project completion. The information provided is based on statistics from the project (among which webinars and events) and insight gathered during project duration, including literature review and discussions with experts.

On the overall, it appears that the project is a first step towards increased knowledge and involvement in ICT activities with known and reduced environmental impact. As awareness raising is currently increasing among stakeholders and the public on these aspects, a global strategy may be implemented at the EU or MS level to ensure the effective impact of existing initiatives for the ICT sector.
