ICT sector and the clean energy revolution
Will 21st century technology continue

Did Facebook care what powered their servers? Not in the
20 month of campaigning
800 000 FB users engaged directly
with FB over use of power
make Facebook ”UNFRIEND COAL”
 With the energy demand of the internet set to triple by 2020 it is vital the cloud

Cool IT Leaderboard
 GHG Saving Solutions
 Climate Advocacy & CEO Speech on emissions targets
 IT Energy Impact – reducing own emissions and renewables use
Telefonica, Vodafone, Softbank, AT&T, NTT, NEC, Alcatel Lucent added for
the 2012 edition
Power of information
 Without much greater transparency on energy sources and complete
emissions from companies its is very hard to differentiate between the green
claims made by companies.
 Even for Greenpeace procurement of ICT services this is a challenge!
Best practice on Renewable Energy procurement
 Energy efficiency and avoided emissions;
 Direct installation or direct investment in renewable energy supply
 Renewable energy credits should not be used as the primary strategy for
increasing renewable energy consumption
Best practice examples
 Google has invested over US$900 million in renewable energy projects
 KPN in the Netherlands has a 100% RE target and purchases from power
utility that only invests in RE capacity in the Netherlands.
 BT investment in large scale wind projects in the UK.
 Apples investment in solar powered command center in Arizona and
130MW solar project in California announced in February this year
Facebook commitment to site new datacenters with a preference for RE
and advocacy for greater RE supply
