Sustainability Assessment (SA) is a complex appraisal method. It is conducted for supporting decision-making and policy in a broad environmental, economic and social context, and transcends a purely technical/scientific evaluation.

Converged infrastructure

Moving green IT infrastructures toward a highly standardized, virtualized & automated converged infrastructure is a must. ICT and Environmental Enforcement Directorate Awareness.

Assessing program performance relative to expected results is a key feature of the cyclical Plan-Do-Check-Improve management model of an "Environmental Enforcement Directorate"

Successful enforcement will ensure that regulated individuals, companies, and government agencies act in a way that achieves the objectives of environmental regulations. By creating negative consequences for violations of the law, enforcement deters illegal conduct. Deterrence is further strengthened when potential violators determine that those consequences—penalties such as fines and jail time—outweigh the potential benefits of non-compliance.

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) is bound to play an increasingly prominent role as a key enabler of renewed and sustainable growth, given that it has become an essential element of the infrastructure underpinning competitive economies. Besides supporting economic sustainability, ICT can play a leading role in fostering environmental and social sustainability both within its own sector and as an industry-wide enabling infrastructure.

Not only is the ICT industry increasingly adopting measures and strategies to reduce the sector’s energy footprint, but it is also developing innovative solutions to diminish other sectors’ energy consumption and improve overall sustainability across industries.
