This toolkit details on how ICT companies can build sustainability into the operations and management of their organizations, through practical applications of international standards and guidelines. The toolkit begins with an introduction to the topic, then explores other areas to tackle green initiatives in the ICT Sector. It is designed to help improve business and sustainability performance and explores why companies cannot ignore their sustainability performance if they seek superior financial performance. Finally, the toolkit covers how it may mature and develop in future, through extending its scope, deepening its metrics, lowering the questionnaire burden on ICT companies, and through the provision of an implementation program to enable national regulators, policy-makers and individual ICT organizations to use the toolkit to achieve their own objectives.
