Developing a comprehensive sustainability framework for the global ICT sector
With the Sustainability Assessment Framework (SASF) we established a comprehensive assessment framework for evaluating Information and Communication Technology (ICT) products and services in terms of their sustainability performance.
The design and development of the SASF was characterized by an open and transparent process which included the involvement of GeSI members and external stakeholders. In late 2015 a pilot program was launched, in which a number of GeSI companies tested a draft version of the SASF for robustness and practicality within a business environment. Our goal for 2016 is refining the Framework on the basis of the feedback of GeSI members, as well as further improving the engagement with the external stakeholders who already provided their input during the first phase. test
