ICT sector guidance to Greenhouse Gas Protocol
GeSI is collaborating with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), World Resources Institute (WRI) and Carbon Trust on developing a tool for ICT companies to measure the carbon footprint of their products and Services. Our project to develop an ICT Sector Supplement to the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol Product Accounting and Reporting Standard also involves NGOs, academics and other stakeholders through an open and consultative multi-stakeholder approach. GeSI is playing a leading role in bringing ICT companies on board and in promoting the initiative within and beyond the ICT industry. Already a number of major global ICT companies have committed their support. It is expected that the new guidance will encourage ICT companies to measure, report, and reduce the carbon footprint of their products and services, thus contributing to global emission reductions.
