Resource summary

Environmental Impacts of ICT
1 Use recycled paper or store data on a hard drive to save cutting down forests
2 Only replacing computer parts where possible rather than replacing the entire piece because manufacturing of ICT equipment uses natural resources and produces carbon emissions
3 Dispose of computer waste carefully. If it is just dump it in landfill then harmful chemicals could escape into water supplies to prevent plant life and animals from surviving
4 Reduce the energy consumed by switching off the computer or peripheral devices when not in use
5 ICT equipment tends to generate heat, open a window rather than turn on the air conditioning
6 Businesses should consider using video conferencing to reduce the carbon footprint that employees would create if they travelled to the meeting
