The green digital charter

The Green Digital Charter

  • City of Manchester / Clicks and Links

  • EUROCITIES

  • European Commission

  • Commits cities to reduce emissions through ICT

  • Promotes progress in tackling climate change through the innovative use of digital technologies in cities


Commitments

Commitments

Three tangible commitments:

  • Work with Green Digital Charter signatories on ICT & energy efficiency

  • Deploy 5 large-scale ICT pilotsper city within 5 years

  • Decrease ICT’s direct carbon footprint per city by 30% within 10 years


The charter signatories

The Charter Signatories

28 signatories

40 large cities interested in signing

GOAL: at least 48 signatories by 2014

Ict impact on carbon footprint

ICT Impact on Carbon Footprint

  • Green ICT

  • ICT for Green

    • Measurement

    • Efficiency

    • Transformation

  • Rebound Effects

    • 2nd Order ( eg displacement )

    • 3rd Order ( eg over consumption )


Ict footprint in gdc

ICT Footprint in GDC

The key GDC objective is to reduce a city’s ICT’s direct carbon footprint by 30% over a 10 year period.

  • Green ICT

  • Administration

  • Scopes 1,2

  • Negative Impact


Ict footprint tool

ICT Footprint Tool

  • Version 1 ; Feb 2012

    • Introduction

    • Example from Bristol

  • Version 2 ; June 2012

    • Adopt ITU Approach

    • Advice on use of L.1420 (organisations )

    • Website information/checklist

  • Version 3 ; June 2013

    • Online Method/Calculator based on L.1440 ( cities )


Version 2 follow itu

Version 2 – Follow ITU

  • NiCE was invited to contribute to ‘Methodology to evaluate the GHG Impact of ICT in Cities' being developed by ITU-T (Q18 , Study Group 5).

  • The ITU work on city footprints will provide a firm basis in terms of a common methodology for and as a result we can develop practical reporting tools based on the emerging methodology.

  • L.1420 on organisations should be used by the public administration; wider than GDC requirement.


Applying to manchester 1

Applying to Manchester-1

  • Step 1 – Organisational Scope - define / agree the boundaries of the departments that are to be included in the City’s ICT Footprint.

  • Step 2 – Define the Assets - gather data on the type and number of ICT devices to be included (nb. initially this is likely to be an estimate that can subsequently be refined as further ICT devices get identified within the City, or improved analysis of device types is available, or other factors such as a cooling overhead for high end devices generating significant heat output).

  • Step 3 – Calculate - how much energy, in terms of kilowatt hours (kWh) each asset type uses, both when in use and on standby.


Applying to manchester 2

Applying to Manchester-2

  • Step 4 – Estimate – how much time, on average, an asset is in use and is on standby, on an annual basis.

  • Step 5 – Convert – the kWh units into a CO₂ rating (ie. kgCO2e) based on 0.5246 (note: this may differ dependent on region and country).

  • Step 6 – Summarise – the findings by Department and/or City, as appropriate.

  • Step 7 – Action Plan – detail the actions planned, or need to be undertaken and what effect these will have, and by when, on the ICT Footprint.
