Outset Situation & Challenge
With it´s Green Transformation Programm, the DB is not only making its products and services more sustainable, but also the way it works. This includes IT systems in particular. In Germany IT is responsible for about 10% of electricity consumption and about 5% of CO2 emissions.
But how does IT become more sustainable and where are the biggest levers for this? In order to clarify this question, the DB Group IT asked Zühlke for support. In a joint project, the potential of Green IT for the railway was to be determined, concrete measures to be derived and a green IT community to be established for efficient implementation.
