Negative environmental impacts

Positive environmental impacts

  • Dematerialization (digitization of information)
  • Reduction of movement and transportation
  • Making industry and lives efficient
  • Enhancing environmental awareness and environmental education
  • Environmental sensors and environmental monitoring
  • Consumption of energy
  • Consumption of natural resources
  • Generation of waste

Must quantify both environmental impacts.

ITU-T approach to standardization

Focus Group on ICTs and Climate Change, August 2008 to March 2009

  • The group examines from an international standardization perspective methods for
  • objectively evaluating the effect of ICT on inhibiting climate change.

Study Group 5: “Environment and Climate Change” (Study Period: May 2009 ~ 2012)

Work Party 1 "Overvoltage Protection and Safety"

Work Party 2 "Emission, Immunity, and Human Exposure"

Work Party 3 "ICT and Climate Change"

Q 17/5 : Energy efficiency for ICT equipment and Climate Change standards harmonization

Q 18/5 : Methodology of environmental impact assessment of ICT

Q 19/5 : Power feeding systems

Q 21/5 : Environmental protection and Recycling of ICT equipment/facilities

Q 22/5 : Setting up a low cost sustainable telecommunication infrastructure for rural communications in developing countries

Q 23/5 : Using ICTs to enable countries to adapt to climate change

Merged with Q20/5

Question 18/5: Methodology of Environmental Impact Assessment of ICT

Overview and general principles of methodologies

 L.1400 (approved in Feb. 2011)

L.methodology_general umbrella

Methodology for environmental impact assessment of ICT goods, networks and services

 L.1410 (consented in Sep. 2011)

L.methodology_ICT goods, networks and services

Methodology for environmental impact assessment of ICT projects (L.1430)

L.methodology_ICT projects

Methodology for environmental impact assessment of ICT in organizations

 L.1420 (consented in Sep. 2011)

L.methodology_ICT in organizations

Methodology for environmental impact assessment of ICT sector in cites (L.1440)

L.methodology_ICT sector in cities

Methodology for environmental impact assessment of ICT sector in countries (L.1450)

L.methodology_ICT sector in countries

The purpose of this Question is to develop Recommendations on methodology for environmental impact assessment of ICT and on collecting and calculating reliable data for the assessment model.

Following work items for series Recommendations are running in SG5 for methodologies:

strategic collaborative direction in gsc proposed
Strategic Collaborative Direction in GSC (proposed)
  • Encourage PSOs
    • to contribute to ITU-T initiatives on ICT and climate change
      • to standardize energy-saving ICT systems and methodologies for analyzing, evaluating, and quantifying GHG reductions that may be achieved through ICT use

(L.1410 is basic concept of methodology and useful for establishing the other recommendations of L.methodology series.)

    • to actively participate in standardization work in WP3/SG5
      • to produce recommendations on ICTs and climate change
next steps actions of ttc in support of itu t initiatives
Next Steps/Actions of TTC in Support of ITU-T Initiatives
  • At a WP3/SG5 meeting of ITU-T, TTC members will actively contribute to discussions in collaboration with other PSOs on standardizing methodologies for environmental impact assessment of ICT projects (L.1430), and ICT sector in cities (L.1440) and countries (L.1450).
  • Future TTC Contribution
    • Propose a methodology and power feeding, etc.
    • Support management and operation of WP3/SG5.
    • Liaise with other related organizations.
slide8
International standardization on Environmental technologies for telecommunication, in particular to ICT and climate change is now underway in ITU-T.

We need to reduce environmental loads of ICT equipment and ICT sector, and we also expect that ICT can reduce environmental loads, particularly GHG emissions, in other relevant sectors.

For this purpose, prompt standardizations on objective and transparent methodology of ICT environmental impact assessment are required.

Summary

Proposed Resolution

TTC proposes to modify an existing Resolution.*

The main points to be modified are as follows:

*“RESOLUTION GSC-15/08: (Plenary) ICT and theEnvironment (Revised),”GSC15-CL-13 (2September 2010)

Considering:

  • New Recommendations of Methodology (ITU-T SG5)
      • L.1400 (general umbrella): Approved in Feb. 2011
      • L.1410 (ICT goods, networks and services): Consented in Sep. 2011
      • L.1420 (ICT in organizations): Consented in Sep. 2011
  • New Questions (ITU-T SG5)
      • Q22/5: Setting up a low cost sustainable telecommunication infrastructure for rural communications in developing countries
      • Q 23/5: Using ICTs to enable countries to adapt to climate change
  • GHG Protocol Initiative Scope 3 (WRI, WBCSD)
  • Standardization of Quantification Methodology (IEC TC111)
      • GHG emissions for electrical and electronic products and systems
  • Standardization of ISO 14067 (ISO TC 207)
      • Carbon footprint (CFP) of products--Requirements and guidelines

for quantification and communication
