Cities across Europe are signing the Green Digital Charter which commits them to a wide range of activities towards green digital progress. The three core commitments are: running 5 large scale pilot projects, reducing their ICT carbon footprint by 30% and cooperating with other signatories.
This Toolkit helps interested cities to build on the experiences of others. Find out about sharing activities and tools to improve your green performance. Find out more information here.
The project started on 1 January 2012 and will last for three years. It will set up 11 pilot sites in 11 cities in 8 countries and be operated by 26 partners with an overall budget of almost 7 million Euros. The project is co-funded by the European Commission within the CIP ICT Policy Support Programme. The project objective is to enable public authorities in Europe significantly to improve their management of energy in the buildings they occupy. The implementation of operational services includes 11 pilot sites with more than 550 buildings in 8 countries (United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Turkey, Serbia) with almost 20,000 professionals and staff users and reaching more than 6,000,000 visitors annually. Murcia is participating in the project with 6 municipal buildings. The aim of the project is to reduce 20% of energy consumption, carbon emissions and improve energy efficiency. Users of buildings (staff, visitors and professionals) will be encouraged to improve their energy habits and behavior helped by ICT technologies.
