  5. 5. Green IT 5 Ø Green IT is the study and practice of environmentally sustainable computing or IT Ø Green IT is not new, concept first used in 1992 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. However IT evolves at lightning speed, with new technologies, their diffusion and related scale of the underlying infrastructure, the challenges of Green IT are as new and relevant as ever Ø Green IT aims to minimize the negative impact of IT operations on the environment by designing, manufacturing, operating and disposing of computers and computer-related products in an environmentally-friendly manner Ø Green IT best practices benefits include reducing the use of hazardous materials, maximizing energy efficiency during the product's lifecycle and promoting the biodegradability of unused and outdated products

  8. 8. Grounding Sustainability: Embracing the concept of Shared Value 8 Ø The concept of Shared Value can be defined as policies and operating practices that enhance the competitiveness of a company while simultaneously advancing the economic and social conditions in the communities in which it operates. Ø Shared value creation focuses on identifying and expanding the connections between societal and economic progress. Ø The concept rests on the premise that both economic and social progress must be addressed using value principles. Value is defined as benefits relative to costs, not just benefits alone. Ø In practice, Shared Value is about understanding the needs and challenges of the communities the company works within and address them in order to create a larger amount of value which can then be shared between business and society, still resulting in higher business value than if those challenges and needs weren’t addressed.
  9. 9. Why Impact Investment? • The most important reasons seem to be intrinsic motivation to pursue sustainability goals and project an image of “responsible social actor”. • More effort needed to explicitly link impact investments to financial performance
  10. 10. Market Growth Indicators • Indicators are generally positive, with awareness fueling more talent, opportunities, data and measurement techniques • Government support is surprisingly the growth indicator showing least progress
  11. 11. Main Challenges faced by Impact Investing • While the Government’s support hasn’t shown much progress, it remains an enabler rather than a challenge. Talent in the space is also flourishing. • Awareness, standards and common methodologies are the most challenging aspects for the sector to mature
  12. 12. IT as sustainability enabler 12 Ø Sustainability is very much about efficiency Ø The more output (e.g.: products & services) companies are able to produce with less input (e.g.: energy, natural resources & human resources), the more the business is likely to be sustainable Ø IT is not a source of competitive advantage, because given enough time, IT solutions can be commoditized, but it is indeed a great enabler of efficiency and therefore of sustainable business models Ø With IT’s ability to store, retrieve, transmit and manipulate data, businesses are now able to measure and track (not so) subtle aspects of their business, such as the negative externalities they generate and identify ways to internalize them and/or create positive externalities
  13. 13. Conclusion 13 Ø Green IT is a fundamental challenge Ø Sustainability goes beyond energy efficiency Ø Investments in the field are soaring for good reasons Ø IT is key to achieve sustainability goals
