Sustainability in a connected world: the IEEE Green ICT initiative
The Green ICT initiative was launched in January 2015 with a mission to develop a holistic approach to sustainability by incorporating green metrics in various IEEE technical domains. Sustainability, i.e. reconciling environmental benefits with socio-economic benefits, is directly linked to IEEE’s overall mission of advancing technology for humanity. As such, the broad set of technologies addressed throughout IEEE can be key drivers of sustainability if they are not only properly designed, but also properly applied and adopted throughout various industry sectors. The initiative is currently fostering the development of nine new IEEE Green ICT standards.
