Environmental Impact - The Green Team
Environmental protection is increasingly at the focal point of public attention. Protecting the environment and "doing your bit" to help slow down global warming has become an expected activity of responsible organisations. NRENs are no exception. As part of the GÉANT project, which is committed to promoting energy-saving and ecologically sound applications layered over the GÉANT infrastructure, a team known informally as the “GÉANT Green team" has been established to undertake a study of the environmental impact of the network.
Working towards 'greener' networks
The team is responsible for evaluating how to establish and operate 'greener' (more environmentally friendly) networks and services and has established a three stage process for this work.
