The scope of the Focus Group was to identify from the standardization viewpoint, within the competences of ITU-T,
the impact of ICTs on Climate Change, in particular the reduction of ICT’s own emissions over their entire lifecycle
(direct impact), the mitigation that follows through the adoption of ICTs in other relevant sectors (indirect impact),
and facilitating the monitoring of relevant climate parameters.
