FAQs about the twin transformation and sustainable IT

The twin transformation is the parallel implementation of digital and sustainable transformations in companies. Digital technologies and modern IT solutions support the trend towards greater sustainability by making vital data available and transparent throughout the entire supply chain. This paves the way for process optimizations, more efficient use of resources and further sustainability improvements.

Sustainable IT, also known as green IT, describes the environmentally friendly and resource-conserving use of information and communication technologies. It comprises two main aspects:

Greening of IT: This involves minimizing resource and energy consumption within IT infrastructure such as data centers, networks and end devices. It includes measures such as energy-efficient hardware, virtualization, server consolidation, efficient cooling and the use of renewable energy technologies.

Greening by IT: This approach applies IT solutions to reduce resource and energy consumption in other areas. Examples include videoconferencing instead of traveling for in-person meetings, building automation for energy optimization and process digitalization to reduce paper use.

Sustainable IT solutions aim to cut greenhouse gas emissions, reduce energy consumption and waste generation, and extend the lifespan of IT products.

Green IT consulting helps companies to develop and implement a sustainable IT strategy. Our consultants analyze the current status of your IT activities and develop tailored solutions to improve energy efficiency and promote resource conservation.

Sustainable IT solutions are important for companies for a host of reasons:

Environmental protection, climate protection and sustainability: Sustainable IT solutions help shrink a company’s carbon footprint by saving resources and energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and extending the lifespan of IT products. This supports the achievement of global climate targets with the aim of reducing the impacts of climate change – and helps companies to meet their own sustainability targets.

Future viability: Efficient use of resources and the introduction of renewable energy technologies for IT infrastructure prepare companies for future challenges and reduce their reliance on fossil fuels.

Cost savings: Energy-efficient hardware, virtualization, server consolidation and more efficient cooling solutions deliver significant reductions in energy costs.

Compliance and image: Many companies are subject to environmental requirements and regulations. Sustainable IT solutions support compliance with legal requirements. In addition, adopting a sustainable IT strategy can help companies to enhance their public image as an environmentally conscious company.

Green IT consulting has a vital role to play in the twin transformation, as companies seek to implement digital and sustainable transformations in parallel. By providing advice on energy-efficient and environmentally friendly IT solutions, consultancy firms can ensure that their digital transformation is also sustainable.

Consultants combine digital innovation with sustainability considerations in order to identify levers for an efficient and holistic twin transformation. Data transparency, sustainable AI applications and employee training are key factors in this regard.

Green IT consulting covers a range of different areas, supporting companies in making their IT infrastructure and processes more sustainable and less resource intensive. The relevant fields differ depending on the customer and the consultant:

Energy efficiency: Analysis of energy consumption by data centers, networks and end devices. Optimization through energy-efficient hardware, virtualization and consolidation. Use of renewable energy technologies and efficient cooling solutions.

Sustainable IT procurement: Advice on energy-saving, durable IT products. Examination of environmental certificates. Extension of product lifespans through hardware refurbishment.

Sustainable software and cloud computing: Use of resource-conserving open-source software. Migration to energy-efficient cloud solutions. Optimization of data transfer and storage.

Digitalization and dematerialization: Process digitalization to reduce paper use. Reduced travel through videoconferencing. Building automation for energy optimization.
