Study on "The practical application of the new framework methodology for measuring the environmental impact of ICT – cost/benefit analysis" – SMART 2012/0064

Article
The objective of the study is to assess whether the coherent methodological framework for measuring the GHG and energy footprints of ICT are suitable for the integration into concrete policy measures that contribute to the "greening" of ICT. The contractor is expected to examine a broad bandwidth of relevant measures that could be based on the methodological framework. This should include mandatory and voluntary initiatives which could be relevant for ICT products, systems, services and organisations. On the basis of a mapping of relevant measures and an analysis of trends in the ICT sector the contractor should identify most promising options and analyse these in more depth. Duration must not exceed 8 months. The total price quoted cannot exceed EUR 140 000. Deadline: 10/05/2012
