Seeing the opportunity for our future
Over the last several years, Prompt identified and championed green ICT as a significant opportunity for the ICT industry, as well as the many sectors it supports.
Green ICT opportunity:
• New sustainable economy
• US$1.9 trillion in potential energy and fuel savings
• Potential to reduce carbon emissions by nine gigatonnes
• Opportunity to eliminate 16.5% of worldwide GHG emissions
As part of the 2010-2013 Québec Research and Innovation Strategy (QRIS), the Ministry of Economic Development, Innovation and Export Trade (MDEIE) selected Prompt, Québec’s ICT R&D consortium, to coordinate the first major green ICT project of its kind in Québec: Equation.
