2 Current Activities: ATIS Green Initiative Through the development of standards and industry direction, ATIS and its membership aim to: Grasp the tremendous opportunity to demonstrate environmental leadership and awareness. Advance the ICT industry s ability to develop solutions to deliver energy-efficient substitutes for manual, mechanical, or physical processes. Promote global awareness/acceptance of ATIS Sustainability in Telecom: Energy and Protection Committee (STEP) Standards In January 2010, the ATIS Exploratory Group on Green (EGG) released its final reports: ATIS Report on ICT Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) ATIS Report on Wireless Energy Efficiency
3 The ATIS Chief Information Officers (CIO) Council provides a venue for service-provider, CIO-level representatives to proactively identify and resolve challenging IT issues of common interest. Focusing on environmental sustainability of data centers is a priority initiative for Plans include identifying best practices to improve power management and energy efficiency in data centers. ATIS' focus on sustainability going forward will center on work in the STEP Telecommunications Energy Efficiency (TEE) Subcommittee. Current Activities: ATIS Green Initiative
4 Standards Activities ATIS Sustainability in Telecom: Energy and Protection (STEP) subcommittees and working groups producing related standards are: The Telecommunications Energy Efficiency Subcommittee (STEP-TEE) develops standards and technical reports which define energy efficiency metrics, measurement techniques and new technologies, as well as operational practices for telecommunications components, systems and facilities. The Network Physical Protection Subcommittee Pb-free Working Group (STEP-NPP PWG) proposes, develops, and recommends Standards and Technical Reports relating to the use of lead or the restriction of lead in solder used in the manufacturing of telecommunications network equipment. Current Activities: ATIS Green Initiative
5 Current and Upcoming work Items in STEP-TEE: Released 6 specifications outlining measurement methods for calculating telecommunication equipment energy ratio (TEER). Currently working on Draft Proposed American National Standard – Energy Efficiency for Telecommunication Equipment: Methodology for Measurement and Reporting of Wireless Base Station. Active correspondence is occurring with ETSI Environmental Engineering (EE), the Broadband Forum, and ITU-T SG5 on related work matters. Next steps will include work on Energy Efficiency for Power Plant Inverters, Converters, and UPSs, Wireless Core – xGSN, Wireline Access Broadband Equipment (Includes Microwave Backhaul), General CPE, Set top boxes, Gateways, Home Router, Ext. AC/DC PSU, Storage Devices, IPTV (Components/IPTV Forum), Multi- vendor Modular Products, NCTE, iNID, and Firewalls. Current Activities: ATIS Green Initiative
6 Climate change is a global problem that would benefit from a global solution. U.S. legislation and mandates are being considered by policy makers – Be Prepared. Increased awareness of the important role that ICT can play in realizing efficiency gains is critical. Government mandates or self-imposed industry metrics that would restrict the use of ICTs by indiscriminately limiting total ICT power consumption would be counterproductive. Individual State and Local level requirements and incentives can lead to a fragmented regulatory framework. Standards and best practices across the global landscape should be harmonized to meet the needs of the ICT industrys multinational reach. Challenges
7 Advance environmental sustainability on behalf of our member companies including: Educating industry associations and other appropriate stakeholders of ATIS Green Standardization activities; and Launching efforts to engage other standards developers to achieve globally harmonized solutions. Assess issues associated with advancing wireless network energy efficiency and lifecycle assessment. Work in unison with other standards organizations to achieve harmonized industry standards and specifications. Continue to deliver critical industry standards; i.e., TEER specifications. Next Steps/Actions
8 Proposed Resolution Proposed to modify existing Resolution (GSC- 14/8) to identify COP15 in past tense and COP16 as a future event.

10 ATIS Environmental Sustainability Report Issued in March 2009, the ATIS Report on Environmental Sustainability includes: the ICT sectors definition of sustainability; a review of the ICT sectors current green initiatives; an examination of energy efficiency practices and alternate energy sources; an outline of the business drivers behind the ICT sectors sustainability actions; a demonstration of the ICT industry as an enabler of applications and services that improve energy efficiency in other sectors; and a number of actions to consider in establishing or expanding a sustainability program.
11 ATIS Report Reviewing ICT Life Cycle Assessments (LCA), January 2010 Environmental stewardship in the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) industry will mean all levels of manufacturing, supply, network design and operations are done in the most eco-efficient way possible. Manufacturers will be called upon to design new products with fewer toxics, and to make them more durable, reusable, and recyclable, and with recycled materials. Operators will be called upon to streamline their networks, use environmentally preferred purchasing criteria and clean sources of energy. Network equipment manufacturers may need to arrange for takeback and recycling of equipment. Environmental stewardship depends on good data to make appropriate strategy and implementation decisions. Life cycle assessment is the workhorse for generating environmental stewardship data. This report provides a comprehensive review of approaches to life cycle assessment, methodologies, tools, environmental impact assessment databases, existing standards, and developing initiatives that can support the ICT industry in making life cycle assessment a key enabler in driving and monitoring sustainable business performance in a company.
12 ATIS Report on Wireless Energy Efficiency, January 2010 In recognizing the expanse of the embedded infrastructure to support existing and future wireless users, this report outlines a number of energy efficient practices and methods for consideration by companies seeking to achieve greater efficiencies within their wireless networks. Methods outlined range from simple energy conservation measures to use of more complex automated system-wide monitoring and power control functions including aggressive RF/power management techniques. The increased use of renewable energy sources including wind and solar energy to power cell-sites is also covered, as well as network engineering practices that should be evaluated. For instance, the feasibility of implementing measures such as requiring the use of a telecommunication equipment energy rating (TEER) system for individual pieces of ICT equipment should be considered, as well as its physical placement in the cell-site to minimize power loss and maximize cooling potential. ATIS' focus on sustainability going forward will center on work in STEP-TEE.
13 ATIS Energy Efficiency Standards ATIS STEP-Telecommunications Energy Efficiency (STEP-TEE) subcommittee was established to produce a document or suite of documents for use by Service Providers to assess the true energy needs of equipment at time of purchase such as: Energy use as a function of traffic Energy use as a function of environmental conditions Cooling Requirements Suitability of a product for use with renewable energy sources Improvements in environmental footprint through Life Cycle Assessments Energy Using Products horizontal implementing measures Standby and off-mode definitions Standby and off-mode losses Current work has focused on a uniform method for measuring telecommunication equipment energy consumption (power), as well as establishing efficiency metrics and reporting methods. Subsequent documents in the STEPs series of documents, planned for release over time, will cover other network and consumer equipment and devices including, but not limited to, core network routers and switches, outside plant equipment, gateways, set-top-boxes and other CE devices, and power systems.
