Sponsored by Fujitsu, this Report provides a number of valuable insights into the comparative ICT Sustainability performance of organizations in each of the seven countries surveyed, and between industry sectors within countries. The research uses a unique methodology to quantify ICT Sustainability implementation, to determine the maturity of practices and technologies in end user organizations.
It summarises a total of 1,000 responses to 80 questions covering ICT Sustainability policies, behavior and technologies collected in June and July 2011 through an online survey of CIOs and ICT Managers in large IT-using organizations. The responses were weighted to deliver a score out of 100 in each of the five ICT Sustainability Index components, aggregated to determine the overall ICT Sustainability Index for each organization, ensuring quantitative comparisons between respondents.
The 2010 Report surveyed Australia, India, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. The 2011 survey extended the research to Canada, China and New Zealand.
