GCI is a global environmental organization that empowers the ICT industry to restore and protect the environment. We assist industries, governments, academia and communities in identifying and executing strategies that lead to sustainable computing practices whilst generating green jobs in a low carbon digital economy. We coined the term Low Carbon Digital Economy and are the architects of the model.
As a social enterprise, we apply commercial strategies to maximize environmental and social well-being. Our core commitments are to act to reduce climate change, improve social and economic outcomes and to work with businesses, communities and governments to use resources wisely.
GCI has been the stewards of the industry standard Eco-Friendly Green Computing Definition (EFGCD) since 2007 and the creators of the Sustainable Computing Framework available since 2009. In January 2013, GCI introduced the world's only carbon credit market for demand side energy efficiency by and for the ICT industry. Learn more about why Sustainable Computing is necessary.
