Becoming sustainable in ICT does not necessarily mean that we should only focus on the energy consumed by ICT.
We shall also take into account the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of all ICT components, which is about analysing the environmental impacts associated with all the stages of a product’s life : from raw material extraction through materials processing, manufacture, distribution, use, repair and maintenance, as well as disposal or recycling[*].
