自2015年起，澳大利亚国立大学环境管理计划的重点是阐明可持续发展的目标和指导该计划实施的战略。该计划的关键目标是，到2015年底，将碳足迹的排放量减少20%。其中一个关键的办法是减少电力的消耗，因为它主要造成温室气体的排放。ICT的绿色倡议将为澳大利亚国立大学提供一个通过ICT了解日益增长的能源需求的平台。从项目初始阶段开始，在进行项目工作时就使用了许多项目管理工具。其中包括SIPOC图、Is/ Is Not图以及将在附录部分中提供的利用矩阵。
The ANU Environmental Management Plan focuses on articulating targets of sustainability and strategies of implementation for guiding the plan since 2015 and head. The key target of this plan was reducing the emissions of carbon footprint by 20 per cent by the year ending 2015. One of the crucial ways was reduction in the consumption of electricity, as it mainly contributes to the emissions of greenhouse gases. The Green initiative of ICT will provide a platform to ANU for understanding the growing demand of energy through ICT. There is use of a number of tools of project management while working on the project since the initial stage. Some of these include SIPOC diagram, Is/ Is Not diagram, and utilization matrix that will be provided in the section of Appendix.
The key focus is also on researching and implementing ways for the reduction of negative impact on the environment across the campus of ANU. Following are the key objectives of this project:Investigating and recording the data for carbon footprint released due to ICT across ANU. Identifying ways for the reduction of carbon footprint across ANU as caused due to ICT. Working with the stakeholders for the identification of industrial trends in adopting the green practices of ICT and evaluating technology of energy efficiency for the reduction of environmental impact cause by ICT.Identifying the incentives available by the government for companies which adopt sustainable practices of IT.Increasing the level of awareness about Green ICT across the stakeholder groups.Reducing the emissions of carbon from ICT throughout the campus by 10 per cent.
