ICTFOOTPRINT.eu is the European platform promoting the adoption of carbon footprint methodologies in the ICT sector. The goal is to support organisations in becoming more energy efficient and reducing their carbon footprint, ultimately increasing their competiveness.
Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) will take place between 19th and 25th June, in Brussels (Belgium) at European Commission’s Charlemagne building and the Residence Palace. ICTFOOTPRINT.eu was invited to join the panel of speakers of “Data centres — nearly zero energy consumption”, taking place on Wednesday 21st June, at 2:00 PM, in Charlemagne Building.

"As an ICT SME understanding my carbon footprint through adopting energy efficient methodologies is key for my future sustainability as a company. I can't wait for ICTFOOTPRINT.eu to provide a place for SMEs, like me, to find low-carbon footprint solutions and, at the same time, incentivise those "green-oriented policy" suppliers to provide products with energy benefits which would be a real win-win for the ICT community at large - I am really excited on embarking on this"
Olivier JanPartner Sustainability @DELOITTE France
"Having worked on environmental footprint methodologies for over 25 years, we see the trends in the ICT-sector as very promising. Robust methodologies to assess the energetic and environmental performance of goods, services and organisations of the ICT-sector have been developed in an open manner by consensus. Now, the challenge is to bring these methods both to strategic and operational levels in businesses (SMEs in particular) for them to be used as a support tool for the improvement of ICT sector’s contribution to sustainable growth in Europe. The ICTFOOTPRINT.eu initiative of the European Commission is key in this process and we are proud to be a part of this initiative"
Nikolaos KontinakisProject Coordinator @EUROCITIES
"We have been helping cities share knowledge and experience on energy efficiency and green ICT for many years now. Our Green Digital Charter, for example, has ensured that reducing the direct carbon footprint from ICT is part of the political and technical agenda of 50 major European cities. ICTfootprint.eu will allow EUROCITIES and our members to strengthen our work in this area, and we can’t wait to get started!"
