ITU-T L.1471 (09/2021)

عربي | 中文 | English | Español | Français | Русский
Guidance and criteria for information and communication technology organizations on setting Net Zero targets and strategies
Currently, the definitions of Net Zero and related concepts such as carbon neutrality and climate neutrality for organizations are still under development. Several initiatives, including, inter alia, the Science Based Target Initiative, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Race to Zero, ISO TC 207 and the Net Zero Initiative are working on defining or aligning the different views of these concepts to avoid confusion and reduce risks for green washing.
Recommendation ITU-T L.1471 seeks to guide information and communication technology (ICT) organizations in clarifying the meaning of Net Zero in the context of the ICT sector and setting Net Zero targets and strategies. It also identifies actions that would lead the sector towards Net Zero according to the trajectories described in Recommendation ITU T L.1470.
