ITU-T L.1430 (12/2013)

عربي | 中文 | English | Español | Français | Русский
Methodology for assessment of the environmental impact of information and communication technology greenhouse gas and energy projects
Recommendation ITU-T L.1430 is intended as a complement to ISO standard ISO 14064-2 and the Project Protocol of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol).
This Recommendation provides guidance for the application of a specific methodology to assess the environmental impact of information and communication technology (ICT) greenhouse gas (GHG) and energy projects. This assessment methodology is specifically directed at quantifying and reporting GHG emission reductions, GHG removal enhancements, energy consumption reductions, and enhancement of energy generation and storage in ICT GHG and energy projects.
An ICT GHG project uses mainly ICT goods, networks and services (GNS) and is designed to reduce GHG emissions or increase GHG removals that are quantified by comparison between the environmental impact of a project activity and a corresponding baseline scenario.
An ICT energy project uses mainly ICT goods, networks and services to reduce energy consumption and improve energy efficiency.
From the ICT perspective, this Recommendation takes into account considerations based on existing project quantification guidelines and aims at covering ICT GHG and energy project activities within both the ICT and the non-ICT sectors.
This Recommendation recognizes the importance of project validation and verification for the credibility of project results but does not enforce the validation and verification procedures to be applied. It is expected that such procedures will be determined by the selected GHG programme, national regulations, the project proponent's internal policy or the intended user's request.
