The IEEE Green ICT initiative is a Pan IEEE Societies initiative whose mission is to build a holistic approach to sustainability through ICT by incorporating green metrics throughout IEEE technical domains. The initiative has introduced 9 IEEE standards projects in 2017: IEEE P1922.1, IEEE P1922.2, IEEE P1923.1, IEEE P1924.1, IEEE P1925.1, IEEE P1926.1, IEEE P1927.1, IEEE P1928.1 and IEEE P1929.1.
This webinar provides an overview of these 9 new IEEE standards projects. The standards projects are about to start and will run over the next two years. The Webinar will outline ways in which you can contribute to the standards projects and join the working groups.
