EXIN Green IT is designed to teach candidates about green IT solutions in modern organizations. The program looks at the background of sustainable IT, the IT components and measures that can be applied at different levels. It aligns with the principles of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and underpins efficiency initiatives for supply chain and business operations.
Using IT consumes a lot of electricity resulting in carbon and greenhouse gas emissions. But IT can also enable the decrease of pollution, thus contributing toward Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Green IT can be defined as “The efficient application of intelligent, energy- and eco-friendly technology and techniques throughout the organization”. EXIN is unique in offering two types of Green IT certificates, a Citizen and a Foundation, aiming not only at the IT professionals, but at all IT users.
The Triple Bottom Line concept, People, Planet and Profit applies for enterprises. In addition to financial performance, social and environmental performance should be taken into account. Green IT can dramatically reduce energy consumption. Efficient use of resources and a lifecycle approach, from cradle to grave, contribute to lowering carbon emissions.
