Fixed Network Operator Energy Efficiency Benchmark
Energy efficiency and carbon management are becoming increasingly important for ICT companies as they focus on driving down environmental footprint. Telecom operators need to be able to understand how they can improve their energy efficiency performance in relation to their peers.
Future lifestyles and opportunities for the ICT sector
Imagine you lived a sustainable life this weekend, what would it be like? What role would ICT play in reducing your ecological footprint? And in what ways would ICT solutions support you in “one planet living”- living and working within a fair share of the earth’s resources?
Measuring the Energy Reduction Impact of Selected Broadband-Enabled Activities within Households
The GeSI study examines the link between broadband usage and energy reduction in regard to simple and convenient online activities such as telecommuting, using the Internet as a primary news source, online banking, e-commerce and downloading music.
An Energy-Aware Survey of Mobile Phone Chargers
The GeSI report analyses the most commercially available mobile phone chargers and a number of handheld devices to evaluate the correlation between their rated power and mechanical and electrical characteristics.
An Energy-Aware Survey of ICT Device Power Supplies
The report was jointed commissioned by GeSI and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). It presents the conclusions of an analysis of the mechanical, electrical and environmental characteristics of most commercially available external power supplies.
Using ICTs to Tackle Climate Change
Commissioned by GeSI and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the report shows how ICT can be used in a number of ways to meet the requirements of the three main pillars of the Bali Action Plan arising from COP-13 in December 2007: enhanced action on adaptation, cooperative action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and actions on mitigation of climate change.
The e-Skills Manifesto
GeSI’s contribution to the e-Skills Manifesto shows how e-skills and ICT go hand in hand to enable the transition to a low-carbon economy. In a chapter entitled “Green Matters”, GeSI outlines the carbon-reducing potential of ICT with practical examples such as smart grids, and reviews efforts to put ICT on the global climate agenda through stakeholder engagement.
ICT Sustainability through Innovation- GeSI Activity Report 2009
The June 2009 Activity Report marked GeSI’s first year as a legal independent entity, and international non-profit organisation with an office in Brussels. During the year, we established a foundation, launched subsequent SMART 2020 regional reports, and increased our membership and partnerships.
Social and Environmental Responsibility in Metals Supply to the Electronic Industry
The report was commissioned by GeSI and the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) to help these organisations understand how aluminum, cobalt, copper, gold, palladium and tin are mined, recycled, purchased and where they are used in electronics products.
Tracing a Path Forward: A Study of the Challenges of the Supply Chain for Target Metals Used in Electronics
Seeking greater understanding of the challenges and potential pathways to greater transparency in their product supply chains, GeSI and the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) asked RESOLVE to research the supply chain for electronics products starting with three metals: tin, tantalum, and cobalt.
