This report is the first step towards measuring the ICT industry's footprint. The report has found that the 10 methodologies and standards pilot-tested by industry for 10 months to measure this footprint are practically implementable and compatible. This is a key step towards agreeing, within the global ICT-sector, on a common methodological framework for measuring ICT footprint. In 2011, the ICT industry responded to a call from the European Commission, inviting them to pilot-test 10 international standards, provided by international standard bodies and organisations, such as ITU, ETSI, IE, GHG Protocol. These were tested by 27 ICT companies (telecom, software & services, equipment manufacturing and supply, chips and components manufacturing).
