Carbon footprint measurement methodology
 
 

ETRO contributes via Johan Stiens, as member of the  AIOTI Digital for Climate Task Force, to the second release of the carbon footprint measurement methodology for users of IoT and Edge Computing technologies and services

The Report is structured to present rules and regulations of the European Green Deal, the initiatives and standards, and existing methodologies of measuring ICT carbon footprint. The report also includes how those methodologies can be applied to IoT and Edge Computing, the description of the methodologies, selection criteria and how to measure benefits of using them in reducing carbon footprint by using IoT and Edge Computing technologies and services for several industrial domains.

This second version of the report updates the equations that were introduced in version (Release 1.1) of the Report, which address the calculation of avoided carbon emissions in industrial sectors when ICT is applied by focusing on:

  • a baseline (industrial) scenario that is supported by an ICT solution and a green enabled (industrial) scenario that apply an advanced ICT solution to reduce carbon emissions in the same industrial scenario,
  • the impact that a closed loop recycling/allocation process has on these equations.
