Green Web Engineering

According to Dick et al.1 “Green Web Engineering describes the art of developing, designing, maintaining, administrating, and using a website in such a manner, that direct and indirect energy consumption within the complete life cycle of a website is reduced.”

Based on that article, we will present some suggestions to support the movement to a “Green Web”, especially by reducing the data transfer of the net. The aim is to address the different stakeholders within this field: Designers, web designers, authors, administrators and users. A more detailed description is to find in Dick et al.1

Effects of Information and Communication Technology on Sustainable Development

The examination and consideration of the diverse impacts of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) on Sustainable Development form the basis of all measures and actions that can be taken to produce more sustainable ICT-based products and services.

Due to the complexity of the topic, a classification of the different and very complex interdependent effects can help to make things clearer and easier to understand.

The following paragraphs summarize the state of the art of scientific research, where the effects of ICTs are classified into three categories: first-order effects, second-order effects, and third-order effects.
