Subject/title: Methodology for assessment of the environmental impact of information and communication technology greenhouse gas and energy projects
Summary: 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) projects and ICT energy projects. The proposed methodology is specifically directed at the quantifying and reporting of GHG emission reductions and/or removal enhancements, energy consumption reductions, and the enhancement of energy generation and energy storage in ICT GHG projects and ICT energy projects. An ICT GHG project uses mainly ICT goods, networks and services and is designed to reduce GHG emissions or increase GHG removals. These GHG reductions 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 in project activity scenarios. From the ICT perspective, this Recommendation takes into account considerations based on existing project quantification guidelines, and aims at covering ICT GHG and/or ICT 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 be determined by the selected GHG programme, national regulation, internal policy of the project proponent, or the request of intended users.
Comment: The AAP text of this draft new Recommendation has been transited to the Study Group for approval (December 2013)
