Green ICT​​

Working towards 'greener' networks, services, policy and practice

​Environmental protection is one of the main focal points of public attention. Protecting the environment and 'doing your bit' to make more efficient use of energy and help slow down global warming has become an expected activity of responsible organisations. National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) are no exception.

A GÉANT Project team known informally as the 'Green Team' was established to help National Research and Education Network (NREN) organisations to work towards greener networks, services, policies and practices..


The work of the Green Team will help to reduce the environmental impact of research and education networking across Europe.  Their work includes NREN Environmental Sustainability Policies​, reports and best practice documents; these are all downloadable from an extended database. 

Green ICT is part of the GÉANT special interest group SIG-SCOPE​.​​
