Green IT
« on: January 05, 2011, 10:17 »
Hi everybody,

I am a business school student and I am leading an enquiry about the carbon footprint of IT in big companies : servers, laptop, computers,... The goal is to achieve a whole study with precise datas. I wonder if someone of you has already done something like that, and most of all if the ecoinvent database already have sufficient datas to do such a study.

Thanks to help me,

Olivier

Hello Olivier,

sounds like an interesting study!. If you wish to do it with \"precise data\", you probably won\'t get around researching the data yourself, rather than relying on ecoinvent data.

ecoinvent has a number of datasets from the electronics sector. Here are the items I identified:

use, computer, desktop, mix, office use   CH
use, computer, desktop with CRT monitor, office use   CH
use, computer, desktop, with LCD monitor, office use   CH
