The Green IT Switzerland platform was founded in 2019 on the initiative of the Green IT SI (Swiss Informatics Society) and the Swiss Telecommunications Association (asut).
The aim of the platform is to
- to improve the understanding and knowledge of energy and resource consumption as well as other sustainability aspects,
- practice more energy-efficient and sustainable solutions for the operation of IT infrastructures (Green in IT),
- and to better understand and use the multiple benefits of smart, digitally supported service models (Green by IT).
to improve the understanding and knowledge of energy and resource consumption as well as other sustainability aspects.
“Green in IT” focuses on in-house measures such as the purchase and operation of energy-efficient IT equipment, servers and network infrastructure. Equally important are the associated IT processes and the programming of software that causes low energy consumption.
From a holistic perspective, it is a matter of responsible operation and maintenance of the infrastructure that takes all aspects of sustainability into account.

“Green by IT” deals with the effects on the sustainability aspects of IT-supported applications and services in the areas of Smart Home, Smart Building and Smart City.
The focus is on the multiple benefits of smart, digitally supported service models in the ICT industry, service providers, FM providers and smart cities. These include simplifications in process handling, operational cost savings and lower energy/resource consumption (footprint).
In a nutshell, the keyword is “greener thanks to smart”. The smart technologies help to reduce our energy and resource consumption.
