Course Description

Sustainability in the workplace with Green IT

Using IT consumes a lot of electricity resulting in carbon and greenhouse gas emissions. The IT industry is responsible for about 2% of all global emissions (Gartner 2012). That’s comparable to levels generated by the aviation industry.

But IT can also enable the decrease of pollution, thus contributing toward Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Smart buildings for example. Lighting in these buildings turns on automatically when someone enters a room and turns off again when they exit a room. It’s IT that makes these types of innovative applications possible. Smart IT reduces energy consumption and lowers costs.

Two types of Green IT certificates for CSR and IT professionals

If you want to be greener and smarter but just as effective in the way you do business, the Green IT certificate offers the solution. EXIN offers two types of Green IT certificates. If your company wants to create awareness of Green IT amongst all employees choose the Citizen Certificate. If you’re an IT Professional, the Foundation Certificate teaches you not only to analyze all IT components but will also enable you to reduce costs, increase efficiency and/or reduce the organization’s environmental footprint through technology. The certificate turns you into a sustainability manager.
