Jisc Report Looks at How to Mitigate Digital Carbon Footprints

Jisc released a report, “Exploring Digital Carbon Footprints,” which “examines the impact of digital technology on the environment and offers practical steps that colleges and universities can take on their journey towards carbon net zero.” It was written by Scott Stonham, an independent technology analyst, and is designed to support IT and tech leaders when making decisions.

Jisc notes, “The report highlights best practice around procurement, on-premise IT, cloud technologies and remote working, with an awareness of the cultural, economic and practical realities within the further and higher education sector.”

Jisc’s Robin Ghurbhurun says, “The increasing use of digital technology in education has many benefits, but it’s important that we recognise and try to mitigate its contribution to climate change. Every email, video call and social media post, every piece of content we download, and all the time we work or study on our devices, adds to the world’s carbon load.”
