Green IT: Innovative IT projects for a sustainable world

This is a stand in the Belgian National Pavilion, located in Zone B: Belgium National Pavillion. Stand number: B34 - day 2

Creating a centre for expertise, reflection and guidance on IT based sustainability projects

“Green IT” consists of two parts. On the one hand, IT industry citizens work to design products that are less polluting, less energy-consuming and easier to recycle. On the other, it is a question of innovative projects that will enable, via IT contributions, the building of a more sustainable world. The not-for-profit Euro Green IT Innovation Center wants to play a major role in this second part, by creating an expertise, reflection and guidance centre for the ideas, projects and young companies that rely on information technologies for the purpose of developing a more sustainable world. The Centre will also have a role of recommendation to the public authorities with regard to the added-value of ICT for improving the eco-energy efficiency of the green economy.
