Powerplants Supporting Devices Contribute Two Percent Of Global
Here's a factoid that may come in handy when your boss suggests
teleconferencing to replace face-to-face meetings: digital devices
generate as much greenhouse gas every year as aviation.
At least, Simon Mingay says so. He's an analyst at Gartner
Incorporated, and he added up all the emissions generated by
powerplants serving personal computers, servers, fixed and
mobile-phones, digital networks, printers and telecommunications.
He found the contribution at two per cent of total world emissions,
or about the same as all the world's aviation.
Mingay says most businesses and private consumers are oblivious
to the impact of their IT purchases.. but predicts that by 2010, a
third of all businesses will have environmental responsibility
among their top six buying criteria.
He adds energy is only part of the issue -- that reducing the
use of hazardous materials and stepping up recycling are also key
