ICT Intensive Small and Large Organisations

Most of European organisations do not have any energy efficiency procedures in their business, accounting for high energy & carbon footprint – at high impacts on the final costs. The main reason for this is a general lack of knowledge - that’s why ICTFOOTPRINT.eu wants to provide to all European players practical & easy tools for improving the sustainable aspects of ICT in businesses – and increase their efficiency!

SMEs (55%) encounter difficulties when trying to set up resource efficiency actions, as well as particularly complex legal or administrative procedures (26%)

What are those difficulties for SMEs?

  • Lack of specific knowledge/awareness/expertise about deploying environmental ICT methodologies and main benefits SMEs will get by implementing them.
  • Difficulty in analysing the complexity of technical guidelines and administrative/legal procedures.
  • Lack of time and resources to implement “green strategies”.
  • Inexistence of intuitive and easy-to-use software tools to measure environmental footprint.
  • Difficulty of having resources to make initial investments required by green procedures, along with a misleading idea of the amount of costs.
  • Difficulty and confusion in selecting the most appropriate methodologies to be implemented.
  • Reports about adoption methodologies are not linearly related to SMEs size.
  • LCA and carbon footprint methodologies complexity and difficulty to be implemented.
  • Difficulty and lack of quantified estimations of benefits related to GHG emissions measuring and reporting.
