About the ICT Sustainability: The Global Benchmark Report 2012
Developed by Fujitsu, this report measures the prevalence and maturity of ICT sustainability initiatives being undertaken around the world. The report provides a number of valuable insights into the comparative performance of the organisations and the industry’s they occupy.
A total of 1,200 responses were collected through online surveys and interviews with CIO’s and ICT managers from eight countries between April and July 2012. Respondents were asked 80 questions about their ICT Sustainability policies, behavior and technologies in each of the five key areas of ICT Sustainability.
The responses were weighted to deliver a score (out of 100) for each of the ICT Sustainability Index components. These were then combined to determine the overall ICT Sustainability Index for each organisation, ensuring comparisons could be made 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. This year, Japan was added to the research.

The research uses the methodology developed by Connection Research and RMIT University, (based in Melbourne, Australia.) Through this research we have created a standardised ICT Sustainability Index for ICT-using organisations across eight sectors in eight different countries.
